There are a few posts about invalid chars in a topic over at PD (no link, sorry).

I also noticed that sadman is reporting the same errors (as posted by Cassiel) but with "\" instead of "`" (here, which is strange since the `, although wrong (should be ', right?) is still a low ascii char (96th in the table) and shouldn't give us problems.

A few interesting lines:
Quote
Because the bracket and brace characters of ASCII were assigned to "national use" code points that were used for accented letters in other national variants of ISO/IEC 646, a German, French, or Swedish, etc., programmer using their national variant of ISO/IEC 646, rather than ASCII, had to write, and thus read, something such as

ä aÄiÜ='Ön'; ü
instead of
{ a='\n'; }

'name' and 'description' use grave (in error), 'rom' uses \ (in error):

e.g.
game (
   name "Raze`s Musicpack (19xx)(Success)"
   description "Raze`s Musicpack (19xx)(Success)"
   rom ( name "Raze\s Musicpack (19xx)(Success).d64" size 174848 crc e2ff4b22 md5 d64137f2f29abe3df73539098b175310 )

Two errors for the price of one!   ;)

I must have noticed this aaages ago, just completly forget to raise it....
