matrix rownames B=lll!@#$%^&*()a
. mat l B
symmetric B[1,1]
              c1
lll!@#$%^&~a   1

Plenty of things are actually allowed there, but a DOT and a COLUMN
have a special meaning, and hence can't be used:
--begin quote--
Row and column names may have three parts:
        equation_name:ts_operator.subname
--end quote--
Everything else should be accepted.


Use "_" as Nick suggests, or replace with a char(183), but this might
look differently on different computers.

Best, Sergiy
