Hi,

I posted this to the xetex list last week, but I didn't get any
responses. So I wonder if anyone here knows why this happens:

> As far as I've read, it seems xetex should allow spaces
> in filenames of included graphics. Yet I can't get this to work
> properly. I'd use \XeTeXpicfile instead of \includegraphics, but it
> doesn't seem to have a draft option, which is a must with dozens of
> images in a file.

> "Unable to load picture" error that suggested writing ""filename"". I

> \usepackage{fontspec,xunicode,fixltx2e,xltxtra}
> \setromanfont{Minion Pro}
>
> \begin{document}
> 	\begin{figure}[tbp]
> 		\includegraphics[width=3in]{foo bar.tiff}
> 	\end{figure}
> \end{document}

Thanks,
