Invalid filename message doesn't mention question marks

Steps to reproduce

Type [[Hello?]] in a note and ⌘+Click it to try to create a new note.

Expected result

I expect to be told that ? is not a valid character for a filename.

Actual result

“File name cannot contain any of the following characters: * " \ / < > : |”

The question mark is not included in that list but seems like it should be. There might be some other common, invalid characters that are missing as well?
