No, whitespaces are not ok, you should encode them as "%20" without the double
quotes. But I'd like to see an extension to Markdown that you could write:

![alternativer text]("pfad/und/eine lange/url zum bild.jpg" testtitle)

Which would be outputted as:

<img src="pfad/und/eine%20lange/url%20zum%20bild.jpg" alt="alternativer
text" title="testtitle" />
