Applies to:Oracle HTTP Server - Version: 184.108.40.206 to 10.1.3.4.0 - Release: AS10g to AS10gR3
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When using an Internet Explorer (IE) Browser and entering a URL containing a Non-ASCII character (e.g an acute, grave,umlaut character) the HTTP Server returns a '404' not found error:
If the URL contains all ASCII characters there is no problem.
This URL fails with the HTTP Server returning a '404 Not Found' error. The HTTP Server access_log shows:
"GET /aa%C3%A0.html HTTP/1.1" 404 380
However this URL works fine
When "Always send URLs as UTF-8" is turned off / deselected in the IE browser the URL http://mymachine.oracle.com/aaà.html works fine and the HTTP Server access_log shows:
"GET /aa\xe0.html HTTP/1.1" 200 5
