Controlling the Finder's name sort order Desktop
The OS X Finder uses a different name sort order, so oft-used tilde will no longer make an item appear last when sorted by name. In fact, almost all punctuation will cause an item to be listed first.

The following symbols make an item go to the end of a name list: (in order)

mu: opt-m
pi: opt-p
omega: opt-z
apple: opt-shift-k

I miss the use of option-8 to do the same. It was such a nice character.
