Hello all,

I am stuck with a Database error message at my wik at

The wiki is now not showing any text.

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the
software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "MediaWikiBagOStuff:_doquery". MySQL returned error "1064:
You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to
your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near
'Y��8V��@��i�ĴR���V%�>=����R?��x����i;G�*z��{���N?�zf�޳_ (localhost)".

I was editing a page as Sysop where I entered something like <font
color="#FF0000">Following are not allowed.<br>
</font>1. Alcoholic<br>
2. Tobacco<br>
I did searched google but was able to find some relavent docs. Is it a Bug?
1. how can i correct this.
2. How can I disable hidden  Sql query?
Thanks in advance for the help.
