About character mappings

During data downloading, if a symbol contains one or more source characters defined in any of the mappings, they will be replace with the corresponding destination characters.

This feature is used primarily to allow saving of data for symbols that contain illegal file name characters (\, /, *, ", <, > and |) that otherwise could not be saved.

For example, the data for the symbol TSE:ABX downloaded using the Google datasource could not be saved as "TSE:ABX.csv" because of the illegal ":". However, if one of the mappings is ":" to "_" (which is the only default mapping), then the data for that symbol will be saved as "TSE_ABX.csv" which is a valid file name.

It is ok to map a character to no character (just leave the second edit field of the mapping empty) - this will result in the source character being removed completely from the file name of all symbols that contain it. It is also ok to map a character to space (blanc).
