Mira,
I think that Net_names that are meaningful and continuous are much easier to
decipher and track. I hate using spaces in Net names due to the fact that
inevitably one of them is going to get an extra space in the name and won't
connect. These are almost impossible to spot and frustrating to fix. The
under_score is safe and esthetically pleasing way to show Net_names. In
large complex designs I like to know the function of the node as well as
it's label. ie. DATA_RST_EN = data reset enable
Regards,

Abd,
"Net_names" like this look awful on the schematic and
the printouts. Not recognizable at all.
