Can special characters be used in enumeration literals

I know there is a restriction on using special characters in team names is there any issue with using special characters in enumeration literals.  Example IT&D

I don't think we have a rule on this, so I added a task which requests this information to be added.

I was able to create a literal with a & character in it, but my gut feeling is to avoid special characters if you have found issues elsewhere with team names.

Could you explain what the issue is with special characters in team names? I looked and I couldn't find known issues around the use of special characters in enumeration literals. Maybe we can see if the same problem applies. As a note, there may be a difference between how the Web UI behaves and how Eclipse behaves.
