Gotcha #32 - file names and web browsers

Wow... what a fun day I had today. 2 clients contact me after spending a hour or so wrestling with an email newsletter and a new eproduct. It seems understanding how fickle browsers and the internet can be when it comes to naming files and links is something you need to understand.

After a quick look at the offending items (and a good tidy of some over zealous code creator... another story) I found a file with 2 extensions and spaces in the name and another with a ' in the title. Both of these where causing broken links when viewed online.

So what do we need to be aware of when uploading files to access online or linking to other pages or files.
