item delimiterDoug,

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

  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?
