Description Dan Jacobson 2020-04-04 11:05:04 UTC
At https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/rewrite/flags.html#flag_ne
be sure to mention the full list of what character ranges will be escaped.
E.g., not mentioning % leaves users guessing if it will be doubly escaped.

Currently the document just says
"special characters, such as & and ?, for example"
leaving users without a final reference to the precise list.
No, "special characters" might mean different things to different people in different circumstances.

Elsewhere on the page we also see "...non-alphanumeric characters..." OK, but maybe give a regexp [^A-Z...] making that wording more exact.
