Underscores in a file name

One point that wasn’t answered is regarding underscores in a file name.

In terms of best practice and your opinion, given that all the document templates in your toolkit have underscores is this something you recommend? What is the reason for having underscores in the file name?

The underscore is used instead of spaces because some old operational systems and applications have problems handling spaces and other special characters. Since we do not know if our customers may have issues regarding these situations we make use of underscore in toolkits name files.

The use of underscore may turn filenames difficult to read by persons, so you need to verify in your own context the need or not for the use of underscore in file names.
