Okay. But IMHO comma, period, slash and backslash belong to the standard ASCII code, but your wrote, one should avoid to use them. And what about space? I am not sure, if it is an ASCII item or not.

Could we say, only latin characters, arabic numbers, underscore and hyphen should be used in path and file names? Or would at least additionally comma be possible?

Kind regards, Friedrich
