I've always chosen numToChar(1) as an item delimiter when I needed something special. Hasn't let me down yet...

Subject: item delimiter
What is the "safest" char to use as an item delimiter when you don't know anything about the text? I realize that arrays don't have the delimiter delimma, but my question is about lists. What ascii char is least likely to be used by some foreign language as either a letter or as a punctuation mark? Can I use one of the codes between 0 and 7 or between 14 and 31 as an item delimiter?
