As part of an URL, say a .html file, yes I think that hyphens are prolly
the most conventional, as well as the standard with SEO string
generation via modules like, PathAuto, etc., but for actual files, like
.pdf files or .tar.gz, .iso, .png, etc., the convention usually adhered
to is in utilizing *mostly* underscores.

Now if that's not clear as mud then we'll have to obfuscate it a bit
more for you ;)
