I understand some may not be followed as they are recognised from databases/dynamic pages, but are any a definate no go ? Any general thoughts well appreciated.

stuart, you're referring to those characters being used in text links on the pages?

Thanks Marcia. Mainly at the end of absolute addressing the pages/filenames and the link address behind the link/page text, the page text has 1񔘝4 at top and a next/previous graphic link at the bottom. So my dilemma is should I name multiple pages for the same catergory as keyword1, keyword-1 or keyword_1,2,3,4 etc. Whats safest with spiders, would they stop and drop a page at a number, hyphen or underscore like some spiders do at a ? or % when they think they'll get stuck in some sort of eternal loop of a dynamic/database site. I've been in circles on this one for ages. I notice how these forum21/239.htm pages have a number as a roll-on like thus and I know behind the scenes there are % and ? marks but what really is what? Sorry to droll on. TVMIA. I've tried to get all the characters in this post for the next struggling newbie to search on and get the answers. I've seen so many posts about this but can't quite pinpoint my answer.
