One more comment about whether to use 8.3 file names for graphics. A
developer on my team finally chimed in. Here's what he says:
"Most Unix systems can only read ISO9660 filesystems on CD. This filesystem
only allows 8.3 filenames."
So, in sum (at least according to my sources), 8.3 is a Unix CD limitation.
Otherwise, you don't need to abide by it. Macs are another story all
together, I suppose, and I have no answer as far as they are concerned.
