Hyphens in server names

What are the issues with a hyphen in a server name regarding ODBC, T-SQL, etc.?

None that I can think of. While I don't put special characters in machine names, I've worked on many that had special charaters in them. As far as T-SQL goes, there are none, because the T-SQL language does not interact with the server name.
