My bank once send me a password, that look like a number.
After many unsucessfully logins (then block any more attempts),
I had to call them to fix it.
Even they cannot login !
Finally I suggest just cut + paste it to the password field, and it work !
Reason ? the "number" is mixed *only* with I O !!!
Now, I write number 0 with a slash in it, 1 with exaggerated slant.
And, I never use O, I as variable name (lowercase ok)
BTW, non-breaking "fake" space in filename is a bad idea.
