Subject RE: NT: spaces in paths
Date Thu, 23 Oct 1997 15:09:52 GMT
Windows NT uses UNICODE in the implementation of the representation of the 
names of objects,
such as files. The UNICODE character set is an international standard with a 
large number of
character set classes.

And you are right. Microsoft did not invent the use of spaces in filenames, and 
filename canonicalization.
But neither did Apple. But  Xerox Parc palo-alto research labs didn't invent it 
You've got to go way back to the earliest timesharing days at MIT for that.
