I think you refer to the good-old-DOS-days. They're over now ;-)
I think pd should support all characters the OS does. For Win >= 2000
there are some special characters like ,'+-; white space and some more.
\/:*?"<>| are not allowed.
But I know it's hard to implement keeping backwards compatibility to old
patches and/or externals...
Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
