Both $SERVER_SIGNATURE and $HTTP_SERVER_VARS["SERVER_SIGNATURE"] return a malformed result when Apache 1.3.2 has ServerSignature directive set to  EMail.

phpinfo returns the correct result under the heading "Apache Environment" but the malformed one under "PHP Variables".

The malformed result for my installation is:

<ADDRESS>Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.20 Server at <A HREF=\"mailto:root@localhost\"></A> Port 80</ADDRESS>

The problem seems to be that the \ characters are not being interpolated and are thus corrupting the mailto: link in the resulting HTML page-source.

I suspect (although I have not tested) that the same problem would occur under other OSs/WebServers that use a server signature.
