2.3.3 Values of subscripts

Local variable subscript values are nonempty strings which shall only contain characters from the M printable character subset. There is no specific restriction on the length of a subscript, but a complete variable name reference is limited according to the restrictions specified in 2.3.2. When the subscript value satisfies the definition of a numeric data value (See 7.1.4.3 of Section 1), it is further subject to the restrictions of number range given in 2.6. The use of subscript values which do not meet these criteria is undefined, except for the use of the empty string as the last subscript of a starting reference in the context of data transversal functions such as $Order and $Query.
