    Is there a workaround for the inability to use:[TABLE]
    [TR]
    [TD]"[/TD]
    [TD]*[/TD]
    [TD="width: 16"]/[/TD]
    [TD="width: 16"]:[/TD]
    [TD="width: 16"]<[/TD]
    [TD="width: 16"]>[/TD]
    [TD="width: 16"]?[/TD]
    [TD="width: 16"]\[/TD]
    [TD="width: 16"]|
    [/TD]
    [/TR]
    [/TABLE]
    in file/folder names..?

    Thanks.

    No - because they each have their own significance within the folder/filename syntax so would lead to ambiguous interpretation by the operating/file handling system.
