I'd say the resulting sentence is somehow incorrect, but not more than

Google tells me that my version was UK-correct but not US-correct. As
french, I have no opinion on the subject, I take yours ;-).
How about this:
A path can use the C-style string quoting (this is accepted in all
cases and mandatory if the filename starts with double quote or
contains `LF`). In C-style quoting, `LF`, backslash, and double quote
characters must be escaped by preceding them with a backslash. Also,
the complete name should be surrounded with double quotes (e.g.
`"path/with\n, \\ and \" in it"`).
This should be technically correct, and "this is accepted in all cases"
should encourrage people to use it.
