Yes, OS X allows it and apparently Windows does too because the original 
support ticket was from an XP user. I suspect most people don't use 
commas very much and that's why this didn't come to anyone's attention 
till late in the game. But I remember someone on this list reporting 
unexplained crashes that no one else could reproduce, so thought I'd 
post this just in case.
