Actually, it may be that using any reserved word as a column name  
would be tricky.
You would need to be sure to a quoted string in all the right places,  
but even that might trip the script library routines that make data  
grids function.

Just like variables in scripts.

Column labels can be any ASCII string.
Hmmm, but can labels be unicode?
