However, I don't think those should be of concern here. Slashes or

POSIX-compliant environment/interpreter would never come into direct

maintaining this sanity). You are allowed to go crazy with characters
as long as they can be displayed by the system, and as long as you're
not talking about file naming (which is real data to the environment).
Since manufacturers also use the hyphen in place of the slash, a safer
bet would then be 24-96 if you're paranoid.
