Spaces are no problem on Linux/Unix systems. There are two ways to deals with them in the command line:
1) Use quotes: "Filename with space.mp3"
2) Use backslash: Filename\ with\ spaces.mp3

Non standard/regional characters or accents can be problematic. I made a test folder with files with lots of accents a while ago to test file transfers between Windows XP and Linux via Samba, and some would copy ok, some would. I tried to move this folder from FAT32 to NTFS, and it said it was unable because a file was not found according to Windows or "vanished" according to rsync. It has to do with encoding and codepages. So beware of special characters.

and so on...
