What about image file names with a space -- will that be a problem later?

Building the camp attendance application with LC Win and wonder about
the use of a space in a file name of an image. Is that going to cause
troubles later?

I've got the record for each student as a two words with a space
between. That then becomes the "card name." (example, Roberto

I'll take photos of the kids and then rename the file, from the
digital camera, "imagex.jpg" to "Roberto Clemente.jpg". Then I'll get
the photo of the person and have it show in the record, etc.

Am I going to run into problems with the finder or such with that
"space" between the FirstName and LastName?

Should I do something else, like name the files with an UNDERLINE character?

Does anyone have a LC card or button routine that can surf a directory
of photos and rename the file names. Image #25 is "Sally Smith." -->
filename changed to Sally Smith.jpg.
