Default What character comes first alphabetically?

Ok I am in need of some special characters such as %, ^, !, ~ or even alt characters that come first alphabetically. Anyone know any of these that are listed higher up alphabetically than others? I know special characters beat numbers while numbers beat letters but what I really need is something to beat most special characters when listed.



Thanks in advance.

P.S. Please don't ask why lol... its stupid.

[space] ! " # $ % ' ( ) * +
looking at an ASCII charector map it seems that the order is number key symbols followed by uppercae, then ower case...

! is the best special char that can come first and it can even be a file name.
