How to global-ignore file names with spaces ?

I am a new subversion user. I have read all the manual for v1.1 up to
chapter 9 inclusive (that is, excluding appendices) and I have also
browsed v1.3 manual.
I have subversion 1.3.2 on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003.

I have some questions though

How do I include a file name pattern which contains spaces in the
global-ignore list of patterns. The list is space-separated and I have
tried single and double quotes and also backslashes.
I think this piece of information should already be in the book, but I
could not find it.

Also I have a project that I am going to put under version control
that is a web site.
The problem with it it that I for testing I will have to use the
public folder under wwwroot. If I may o copy or working copy of it,
then I can only edit the copy and not test or see the pages.

So I might turn the public folder into a subversion working copy, or I
might create my own working copy and somehow copy my changes into the
public folder every time I want to see my pages.

If I turn the public folder into a working copy I can hardly have more
developers working on the site and it is difficult to set my web
server to ignore all the .svn directories in the folder. My web server
has no feature to automatically ignore or deny access to all
directories named .svn, I have to manualy set permissions on every
folder. :(. Can I tell subversion to keep the .svn directories in some
other place ?

If I create my own working copy of the site I will have to use export
all the time to place my changes under wwwroot and test the new pages.
But my public folder (wwwroot) is on a remote machine (in another
country) and I would like some sort of incremental export.
I do not want all my versioned files copied and overwritten every time
I need to export, because this will just take to long. Can I have
export --force to first check for destination files' date and time and
copy only files that have changed ?

Or is there another way to work on a web site that can only be run and
tested when served by the public server ?

Thank you
Timothy Madden
