No Periods, Period!

If you used Periods in your file names AND numbers you are asking for trouble.

Here are three examples:

When you save a file named this way you'll get this error message:

Just don't use periods. She'll be right mate!

I wasn't aware of that.

Steve, the period behavior you describe came about in 9.0 (though only to the extent that a period followed by a number to *end* a file name was not allowed), but I believe it's been relaxed a bit in 9.1. A period followed by four digits at the end of a filename is still a problem, but anything else seems to work, e.g. "project-2006.09.26" would appear to work fine.
