Hi Doug,

I found on https://testdrive.loncapa.org (running LON-CAPA 2.11.1)  
that if I assigned an Assistant co-author role to a user, then that  
user was able to upload an HTML file to the corresponding Authoring  

You might have someone look in the web server's error log file for the  
logged message containing the phrases:

'trying to publish file' and  ' - not authorized' so you can find what  
filename and Authoring Space username/domain were recorded by  
LON-CAPA, when returning the 406 response code (which results in  
display of the /adm/unauthorized page in this context).
