    how bout you try for yourself and see what youre allowed to do? 🙂

    Look at the bottom.



    Dear “whooami”: Although I appreciate your taking the time to comment, I regret that your response is not, in my opinion, a helpful one, since — as the administrator of a blog with many users — I cannot know, or predict, which characters a prospective user might attempt to use when attempting to register.

    And — given the profusion of operating systems, character sets, human languages, keyboards, etc., which are available to users all over the world — it would impractical for one person to experiment to discover all possible characters.

    Especially since — WordPress being a computer program — there is almost certainly a simple rule, albeit undocumented, which would answer this question.

    Although you and I do not know the rule, I expect that some more savvy user of WordPress will know the rule. I hope that person will take the time to respond to this query.
