Special characters in file names

Roland Meister avatarRoland Meister created an issue

Some characters in file names are handled special for some output formats.

For example, a file named 'demo:1.rst' is embedded as 'href="demo:1.html"' in the HTML output. The browsers interpret the 'demo' part as the URL scheme and cannot follow that link.

Another example are '+' characters for the epub output format. The plus is interpreted as an cgi-escaped space and the readers complain about a nonexisting file with a space.

Are there other characters interpreted specially, also for the other builders?

I think a documentation note is sufficient that lists all specially interpreted characters.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
