I have had problems in the past burning files with special characters to
CD. I haven't experienced it in the last couple of years - but then I've
avoided using the characters. Might be something to check.

Please respond to "Mike


I had an & sign in some file names (like "backup & restore") in Frame. WWP
did not like the special characters. I kept getting a fatal error when
generating my help file and the javascript would never work. Once those &
signs were eliminated from all file names, the help generated fine and no
more problems with the Javascript.

Hi, guys...the powers that be have decided that an application name will
have a plus sign in it. (example: POSADA+)

Does anyone know of any issues, either in helps, web, FM file/books, or
otherwise, where using a + in a file name (example: posada+.exe,
posada+.chm, posada+.html, etc) would be an issue?
