No, but Windows XP Service Pack 2 has borked uploads of HTML documents
in MSIE. There is a registry hack to fix it that has been discussed on
this list recently (Archives at <http://lists.w3.org/>). My preference
would be to switch to a browser without the problem[1]

[1] Well, I assume the problem is limited to IE, not running Windows I
don't really have much chance to test it.
