string encoding html
for some reason when the user fills in a form, let's say his full name, on the server side i get what the user filled in but.. i get "+" between all the words instead of " ".
this is the client side:
this is the server side:
var username=request.parameters['username'];//request is an http request that is returned
I have no idea why it is that way.
I can just simply replace all the "+" to " " but it seems that there is a smarter way to fix the problem.
The data you are passing back to the server is being URL Encoded.
Here's a the RFC spec from the people who wrote it that explains how & why.
