File anming conventions?

I don't understand what you are doing. If your application decides  
which filenames to use by itself, you can just use normal characters,  
numbers and a few special symbols which are known to be safe. The  
dot, the dash and the underscore, to name a few, should be  
sufficient. If the user decided on file names, you should use the  
built-in file dialog of the operating system, which just won't allow  
for saving files with invalid characters. So, why exactly do you  
think there is a problem?
