Dennis,

I've gone with the convention of RW_n for the following reasons:

1) Some tools (Protel Schematic -> PCB) loose case.  Occasionally I'm left
thinking what the heck some NOBCLP or whatever signal is, especially bad
when the preceding N makes a meaningful word: nAP becomes NAP.

2) I do a fair amount of verilog code along with my PCB designs, and I want
my names to be as similar as
possible between the designs.  In verilog, I use the convention that all
signals are lower case with underscore to separate words.  In Protel I
follow the same convention just with all caps.

3) Lower case and underscore are accepted as parts of a name by most tools.
On the other hand, both "*" and "-" are operators in many languages.
