    Gary: might be worth mentioning that when downloading from a website, for example an image or file, the file name often includes underscores and other modifiers, as it recently happened to me. Nothing wrong with that other than you may need to rename those files if the sorting in Finder is being affected in a way that doesn't fit your filing preferences.
