Errors in "ASCII - Binary, Octal, Decimal, Hexadecimal"

One of the fundamental problems that I am currently facing with this course revolves around the fact that for the sections within this subject that have me type a symbol that is represented by decimal, hexidecimal, etc such as !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, *, (, ) are not accepted for the answer even though the correct answer are these symbols and when it has me write the correct symbol, it still refuses to accept it as the correct answer, thus requiring that there be words to supplement the symbols. The person who maintains this course @Nibiko appears to not be on the forums based off of my searches although if someone could contact him to fix these parts of the course, I would be very grateful. Otherwise, I would be happy to fix these problems myself if I were given the ability to edit the courses.
