#4413 closed enhancement (fixed)

Description

Now this isn't really a bug... because hostnames are not supposed to contain underscores; according to RFC 822. However, the following site works under Linux but not under Haiku - gs_server.gerbilsoft.ddns.info/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=gens.git - maybe it could be seen as an enhancement to accept the underscore character, or maybe it would create havoc. Any thoughts? If this is a silly idea, please close the ticket, otherwise my current solution is to continue to edit the hosts file...

If I recall it correct, underscore is an invalid character in URL according to HTML5 standard, but is surely used with the older non-HTML5 sites during many years in future. Could this be implemented so that it is marked invalid, if HTML5 or above is used?
