    DataBase, Table and Field Names

    Are there any rules for naming db's, tables and fields?

    For example, I know that MySQL doesn't like white spaces in these names. How about names begining with numbers? etc....

    Is there a web site for this info? I tried mysql.com and couldn't find any info on this.

    Could you give me to the actual page the information is on? As I said in my previous post:
    I tried mysql.com and couldn't find any info on this.
