The documentation in the manual is correct but very hard to find due to its location in the "preface" to the "examples" on the Session pages. Also a few words in the sections on Predefined Variables would be helpful, because it is a bit different than, say, $_COOKIE. The absence of the information, where $_SESSION is explained, would signify its insignificance or nonexistence.

The hard-to-find documentation sentence I'm about is:

"The keys in the $_SESSION associative array are subject to the same limitations as regular variable names in PHP,"
