Question mark in URL Exclusions or Filename - supported?

Does OE supports "?" sign in masks in URL Exclusions field or Filename field?

|Also, I tried using "*" sign in URL Exclusions field but it seems it is NOT supported either?
I.e., URL like:
But maybe I'm doing something wrong.

|Sorry, ? means only the ? symbol, because it often occurs in URLs. * is fully supported.
What is wrong with */path/bad.html ?

|? can be useful if I want to exclude only files 11.html, 12.html, etc but want to get file 1.html
It isn't really a problem though - thanks to OE supporting [0-9] ranges in Filename filter.

|Yes, this is why I added [...] keywords. Both * and [ symbols are rare in URLs, so they are OK to use as such wildcards. But ? symbol is a different story - nearly 100% of sites have many URLs with them.
