There is a README.txt file that has the same permissions as the zip files but it is not showing up in the browser.  Any help would be much appreciated.

When listing the INDEX of a directory, our servers are configured to 

IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t

If you rename it to README.html, the server will display it when showing 
the directory index.

Or, rename it to something other than README* for it to show up as a 
downloadable file...
