[resolved] Use of % symbol in comments results in 406.shtml error (2 posts)

    Definitely an odd one. Not serious unless somebody tries to uses a statement that includes a percentage.

    Posting anything by anyone in the comments section, or if I edit a comment while logged in, with the % character results in:
    "Not Found
    The requested URL /406.shtml was not found on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    Just posting the % without anything else results in the same problem.

    I found some reference to this error message relating to "Im receiving an error 406 message in my web site". See http://secure.plusplushosting.net/knowledgebase/1018/Im-receiving-an-error-406-message-in-my-web-site.html

    Any help would be appreciated. Site: http://www.jonathanblaine.com/wpress I use shared hosting.

    Thanks

    Apparently, this was being caused by something called "mod_security rule ID 950107" which was resolved by my host.
