I tested '>', '<', ',' and '-' and they work fine. So they're not reserved.
Also, if you haven't checked out ScalarMap.setScalarName, it may be
helpful to you as well.

thanks for the tips! Just to be absolutely clear, what are the reserved
characters that can't be used in VisAD "names"? In one instance I see "
", "(", ")" and "." Looking at Bill's initial email response showing
(time -> ((x, y, z) -> (t, p)))
one might infer that "-" and ">" are also reserved?
