Much better:  upload all files as binary, so they are byte for byte 
identical on both systems.  Sometimes that might require some local 
preparing, but that beats strange problems with encodings, line endings, 

Perhaps it's obvious, but that also means a local staging area whose 
directory tree is identical to the target system.

Once you have done my suggestions above, a single rsynch command will 
upload any files that have changed, without you specifying which ones 
they are.  So you don't need the "integrated file transfer feature" of 
various editors & guis.  You just run one batch file which you set up, 
and when it finishes, the systems will match.

rsynch has lots of option switches, but once set up, it's trivial to use.
