10.7: Saving and filenames in 10.7.1 and up
Authored by: Zeitkind on Dec 23, '11 07:04:32AM

Well... the colon is a forbidden char since the beginning of Mac OS and the automatic change to hyphen works since.. no idea, prob. as early as Mac OS 6.x, I at least remember it from Mac OS 7.
Background: the colon is the internal file path seperator in Mac OS (X).
