- when I used % sign in a string, as a result after the first-word letter skipped.

Test script:
    '12.5% tax price: %1$s',

Expected result:
12.5% tax price: 1200

Actual result:
12.5ax price: 1200

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

If you want a literal percent sign then you have to escape it as %%.
