Thanks Pico!

I fear i misphrased my question - the page titles are spaced (with
$SpaceWikiWords=1), but i want the filenames (which i referred to as page
names, according to
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.wiki.pmwiki.user/9521 ) to
incorporate spaces too (encoded as "%20") - is that possible?

What problems do you think could occur when the page names/titles contain
the whole question? I don´t know what kind of better naming-system i could
establish for new pages, easy enough to understand by all my users... :-/
