thanks for the reply; i'm aware of the spaces not being legal (which is
why i mentioned my not having control over what's generated). to make
matters worse, it's RLIN (library) software, which is almost impossible
to get changed.

if anyone has any hack to fix it (or where i should look) in the source,
please let me know - i'm holding off hacking anything for a bit!
