Default Variable Names in Profiles

Just a little bit of advice if you use profiles...

I have just spent an hour trying to figure out why my inlet/outlet profiles in Fluent won't work as expected, and once again have I re-discovered that you can't use numbers (0-9) or upper-case in your profile variable-names. By default I tend to call total-temperature for "T0" and if you do this in Fluent (I tried it on HP and Linux platforms) your profiles will not work and you will not get a simple error message explaining why... *sigh* changing case and replacing "0" with "total" isn't the first thing you try.

Hopefully I'll remember this next time now ... (hint to Fluent: please fix this).
