When wanting a separator in names, I use the underscore '_'.  Will that be a
legal character in this proposal?  I hope so.

So Abdul, is your name written:
"Abdul-RahmanLomax" if upper and lower case is OK, but spaces are not.
"ABDULRAHMANLOMAX" if only uppercase is OK, and non-alphanumerics are
forbidden.
"ABD_UL-RAHMAN_LOMAX" if underscores and hypens are OK.

Of course, I hope no one is trying to put you on a PCB!  ;-)

Don't forget, spaces in filenames are supported in >= Win9X.
