After uploading, everything seems fine except that the contents of the uploaded file contain only the filename.

This occurs when your browser does not support RFC 1867 for uploads, such as versions of Internet Explorer prior to 3.02. The browser sees the <INPUT TYPE="FILE"> definition, and interprets it as <INPUT TYPE="TEXT">. Since the text box contains the filename, this is only information transmitted by the browser. Additionally, like all form information, the filename is URL-encoded (which explains the funny "%xy" contained in the filename).
