    I have include underscore _ in my SID, but never get a transaction with that SID, so I wonder if anyone has any successful case with underscore SID?

    OR _ IS ILLEGAL?!

    I'd be surprised if it isn't allowed, since spaces ARE allowed, but, umm, it doesnt specifically say you can either:
    quote:
    An SID can be up to 64 characters, and may include spaces. If spaces are used in the SID they must be URL-encoded (e.g. %20).


    I'd assume that to mean alphanumeric + %20's .. just to be safe.

    Then again, Performics states that the MID must be an integer value, and, I just learned (Thanks TCS!) that it can be alphanumeric...

    Why would you want to use an underscore?

    Yup. Steer clear of the hyphen, it's a recipe for encoding disaster.

    I tend to use a . to replace a -
