Underscores are allowed in the spec:
* Must only contain the ASCII characters "[A-Z][a-z][0-9]_" and may not
begin with a digit.
The general solution is to change all special characters to underscores.
If underscores are not working for you make sure your editor is
outputting ASCII underscores and not some similar looking UTF-8
