:-) well, I guess one of the calc experts might have an opinion on that. 
My gripe is that as I delete the prefix when all letters are gone ( e.g. 
now we have a blank prefix ) I get a dialog telling me that the sheet 
name is illegal, so.. naturally I assumed that's what you intended. 
Additionally I can enter any other so-called illegal character e.g. '*' 
or '/' etc. get the same error dialog and  *still* can save a prefix 
containing those characters.
Personally I would not check every keypress, an alternative would be to 
check the prefix when you press 'ok' and if it is illegal then don't 
close the option dialog but instead restore the previous 'legal' entry ( 
selecting the entry probably is an idea also ) and raise the error 
dialog ( but there are other workflows I suppose )

just what I mentioned above
