kt: I have spaces in mine when they are mostly for me — it makes them easier to read. But if I need to send them somewhere, I will replace the spaces with hyphens or underscores.
I don't really care for those either...'-}}

But they are at least better than spaces...

I've always read that underscores are "better" to use than a dash but I can't remember why...

I think I was a programmer for too long and worked with DOS for too long for the reason I get so unreasonable about spaces, dashes and underscores. I've only very recently allowed myself to use more than 8 characters in a filename and while it does make things more intelligible, I still cringe inside every time I do it...'-}}
