What characters are allowed in filenames for HTML files on ALL servers (*nix, Windows, etc.) ? I'm looking for the "lowest common denominator" that will work on all servers. USE: I'm naming a file to be served up publicly (Mysite.com/My-Page.htm)

E.g., space? _ - , etc.

E.g., can I have File-Name.htm, File_Name.htm File Name.htm?

Obviously, this needs to work with all servers and browsers. (IIRC, the name is limited by the server not the browser, but I could be wrong).
