Do I need to scan for my chosen delimiter character and remove it (which
obviously changes the text) or is there an accepted ASCII character that
programmers use for delimiting text and that no-one can input at the
keyboard (OK, I know about ALT+nnn, but besides that)?

I'm using PHP.

Favourite delimiter anyone?

\t (tab, generally not typed at the keyboard and avoids those pesky
characters which might actually be in the text.
