John,
I do not have a Window's machine available at this time. I did try
Import with the URL ("/http://ichart.finance...."; on my Mac OS X4.5
with V5.2 and it works.

The error message suggests that there might be a character(s) in the
URL that needs to be escaped on a Windows machine

Try the simple version of your URL:

Import["http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/table.csv?s=%5EDJI";, "CSV"]

and see if that works. On my Mac I get

{{"Date", "Open", "High", "Low", "Close", "Volume", "Adj. Close*"},
   {"3-Mar-06", 11024.23, 11125.01, 10942.99, 11021.59, 2152950016,
11021.59},
   {"2-Mar-06", 11052.57, 11090.91, 10951.71, 11025.51, 2494589952,
11025.51}}

Cheers,

Brian
