Subject Is semicolon a character that needs escaping?
Date Thu, 02 Sep 2010 19:35:08 GMT
According to
only these characters need escaping:
+ - && || ! ( ) { } [ ] ^ " ~ * ? : \
but with this simple query:
TI:stroke; AND TI:journal
I got the error message:
Unknown sort order: TI:journal

My first guess was that it was a URL encoding issue but everything looks
as you can see, the semicolon is encoded as %3B
There is no problem when the query ends with the semicolon:
gives no error.
The first query also works if I escape the semicolon:
TI:stroke\; AND TI:journal

>From this I conclude that there is a bug either in the docs or in the
query parser or I missed something. What is wrong here?
