There are some exceptions -- characters that cannot be typed and which a 
user can't enter into the text. I usually use numToChar(8) as a 
delimiter, because that's the Delete key -- and it is impossible for a 
user to type a delete character into the text. Another one I like is 
numToChar(3), which is the Enter key character, which also cannot be 
placed into the text. I've had good success using both of these. Someone 
else mentioned any of the ascii characters 1-6, which should also work fine.
