This is why I always encourage anyone creating web sites and SQL databases to keep everything lower case and avoid spaces or special characters in their file names. This way you cannot have this get you. In sports there is a thing called economy of motion. You reduce all the extraneous movement in order to make the form efficient. I think it's wise to engage in Economy of Method when dealing with information technologies. Eliminate all the things that can trip you up.
