It seems like Mathematica has a great list of all of the escaped characters it can put into text (along with the escape sequence), but doesn't have a list of valid non-escaped characters. Are only alpha-numeric letters allowed as non-escaped characters in a variable name? I was looking for an EBNF definition for mathematica that might let me read the list, but I can't find that either.
