1. Down with spaces in the name of any file that needs to be uploaded
2. BOO on any file that has a special character of any kind. Some
characters are safe, but why the heck take a chance?
If you are talking about files that users create that you have no
control over, then I think you will have to escape the file (and path)
names. There may be a library that does that, but essentially you
would replace space with %20, and any other special characters that
you will allow with their respective URL equivalents.
Eventually though you will have to account for the fact that people
are going to try to use characters that are simply not allowed, and
you will have to check for that and alert the user that illegal
characters are being used in the file name.
