I tried the above and met with partial success:

The following worked:
    \input{"folder1 with space"/"folder2 with space"/"latex file with  

but the following did not:
    \include{"folder1 with space"/"folder2 with space"/"latex file  
with space"}

Running with \include warns that "folder1.tex" and "folder1.aux" were  
not found and proceeds with typesetting to produce an output with the  
string:  folder1 with space"/"folder2 with space"/"file with space",  
i.e. it prints everything after the opening quote as a string.  
Putting the entire path into a single pair of quotes doesn't work  
either. Failing to read the path, \include seems to interpret the  
first quote to mean "print what follows as a string".

The question is, can \include handle paths with non-standard characters?
