Security issue

Hi, I'm getting the following issue when I update my form in HTML editor if I try to insert span tags
412 Error
Your request got filtered out due to possible security issues.

One or more things in your request were suspicious (defective request header, invalid cookies, bad parameters)

If you think you did nothing wrong:

try again with a different browser
avoid any evil characters inside the request url
If you are the owner of the website, you can consider revising the rules of the mod_security module or turning it off from your Web Hosting Control Panel.

I wanted put a span tag inside the h2 but for some reason I get a 412 error.

Some servers have security settings that won't allow HTML content submitted through a form to prevent cross site scripting. This security setting is in conflict with having an html editor on the page. You will need to contact your hosting provider to find out how to disable the security for your forms that include an html editor.
