any character, including numbers and Latin.
create a new patch, create new [comment] object and
save it, probably you'll get smth like this:

  #N canvas 105 111 420 200 12;
  #X obj 111 71 comment 0 12 helvetica ? 0 0 0 0 comment;

if you DO NOT close this patch after creating
you can send it any text you want (of course only in Latin)
from Ctrl+T dialog window.

BUT: when you close this patch, then open it again
and try to send to [comment] ANY symbol from Ctrl+T window
PD will crash.. with a message like this (translation from Russian):
  ""pd.exe" invoked an error and will be closed. You need
  to restart the program. Error log was created.Ok"

Note that it doesn't matter what encoding the [comment]
object uses when it crashes. You can add new text only
to newly created [comment]s.

The results are the same on both pd-0.36-0.msw and pd-0.37-0.msw.

thanx.it works.
