How to create a milestone task

I need to be able to create one task that is more of a project milestone than a working task. I can't find a way to do this and be able to identify an individual task in query/ report other than by name which will vary with each project. Similiar to creating sub tasks, is there a way to isolate a task by doing something in the UI that makes it a non working 'task'?
