#19694: Search RSS2 Bug with Special Characters
 Reporter:  bhoogterp     |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  General       |    Version:  3.3
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 The RSS2 feed link automatically generated by wp_head() breaks and gives a
 404 page if you have certain special characters...

 Consider the search "John 3:16" (quotes included).

 The search query results in:  /index.php?s="John%203:16"
 The search RSS2 feed link:    /index.php/search/"John+3%3A16"/feed/rss2/

 The first one works fine, but the second, which is automatically generated
 by WordPress' head function fails.  Shows up in Google Webmaster tools as
 "Not Found".
