Are special characters in the body of a commit message allowed?


I used special characters like "" and <> or ‘ in the body of my commit message, is this allowed or should i use text only ?

I didnt find a real answear, and i dont want to f up my github history, so an answear would really help me out!


The only disallowed character in a git commit message is the NUL byte. Any other characters from any encoding are fine.
