I received an error message indicating that I entered invalid characters in a free-text field. What am I doing wrong?

Due to security considerations, restrictions have been placed upon the use of special characters in completing forms on the website. Special characters are limited to simple punctuation marks only. This issue most often occurs in the Technical Abstract free-text field.

We recommend that you type your text directly into the free-text field. If you must "copy and paste" your text, copy from a basic text editor (not a word processing program) and paste it into the field.
