Request for additional platform-specific note re: ANT_HOME

           Summary: Request for additional platform-specific note re:
                    ANT_HOME
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: kbroderick@xtriahc.com


I think it would be extremely helpful if, following the Windows 9x note in 
install.html ("Installing Ant"), there was a Windows NT/2k/XP note regarding 
ANT_HOME as well, particularly that ANT_HOME should not have any spaces in it.  
If this is not a known limitation (the troubleshooting documentation that 
suggests that ANT_HOME shouldn't have quotation marks, which are usually used 
in Windows to contain pathnames with spaces, so I'm assuming that it is a known 
limitation), perhaps a note that using the space-free file name equivilant 
(e.g. c:\progra~1\jakarta-ant-1.5.1 instead of c:\program files\jakarta-ant-
1.5.1) may solve some problems could be added.

(I'm running Ant 1.5.1 on a Win2k box and it took quite a bit of tweaking 
before I realized that this was the problem, but I also had managed to 
complicate matters with additional batch files calling antRun.bat and such; had 
this been as clear a note as the Win9x note, however, I probably would've 
gotten Ant running much more quickly.)

Thanks.
