Can't really make sense of this. They're just characters just the same.

(int)'A' = 65

(int)'$' = 36

Flash does not like symbols and can create errors, as Karl stated.

Regardless, the register page should notify the user that they've entered an invalid password.

The argument that flash doesn't support symbols is higgledy piggledy. If flash didn't support symbols you wouldn't be able to use them chats at all.

Awwww come on, you've just gave away the keylogger prevention technique I've been using for the last few years :(

There is absolutely no problem with Flash. The problem is that the login/register pages filters inputs to prevent attacks.

You can see a similar behaviour on the search page: search for a$b, it will search for ab instead.
