I can't seem to find the reference to this but if this is the case then the 
@ is still the way to go. The @ character could be replaced with the correct 
word for the language in use (and would be the best fit for english). The x 
couldn't be replaced since it's a valid character in point names. The @ 
character is unlikely to show up in a point name. If it did for some reason 
then it could be handled on a case by case basis.
Regardless of any of this, the point share and the osm converters are 
inconsistant. This situation should be fixed, it's at least one thing that 
should be easy to fix.
