Thread-Topic: Automating Conversion of FM to HTML?
You can set the filename rules in Under File > Preferences > General. There you find a Cross Platform File Naming drop down. This warns you when you use a filename that is not supported so you can fix it before the transfer to the other platform. I believe Unix (imagine that) is the safest for cross-platform compliance in general (no spaces in names helps a lot as does case mattering, a confusing concept for Windows) but it might allow lengths that are problems for the other platforms.

It's one of the little gotchas that will bite you when you least expect it. There are occasional problems with filenames due to differences between Unix & MS. Keep filenames short, simple, and lowercase. I had one today when Saving to PDF, as it insisted on changing the file name to uppercase when I entered lowercase. CB -------------------- 2.
