I'd not use these special characters, because they are not international!!!A-Z, 0-9, @, #, $ and _
You can define a column/field with an @, while in my German environment a @
is not allowed. Instead I can define fields/columns with an §.
AFAIK in other environments $ is not allowed while the Pound (Currency) sign
can be used.

I was led to believe that field names (unless quoted) only accepted
uppercase letters, digits, and underscores. And yet I just learned
empirically that "#" is also allowed. Any other allowable characters I
don't know about?
