Not sure how to write this new UA to disallow list.

User-agent: ISSB Website Loader 1.1.29
Disallow: /

Is this correct, or should I use slashes to account for the spaces, example:

User-agent: ISSB/Website/Loader/1.1.29
Disallow: /

thanks

Write spaces as spaces.

Take a look at WebmasterWorld's robots.txt for lots of examples.

Use:
[searchengineworld.com...]
to validate your robots.txt

Thanks victor, I am aware of searchengineworld.com's robotcheck, however the file will validate either way so it's not much help.
