Are spaces allowed in nodes' names?

Hello all,

I have a newbie question about Collada naming conventions: Can a node have a space (e.g.: “Bip01 Pelvis”) in its name?


Well, so far, it looks like the main problem is with the joints array of the skin controller. The names are separated by a space, so if a name itself has a space character, that breaks everything.

I also tried with a “%20” instead of a space, but the result is the same. Would putting the joints names between quotations work?

Don’t use name attribute values for that. Use id attribute values.

For the xs:ID type, white space is not allowed and will not validate.
