400 BAD Request error - only in Netscape

Hi,

When I pass data to an ASP VB script with SPACES Netscape returns the error -

"400 Bad Request Due to malformed syntax, the request could not be understood by the server"

The error doesn't occur with IE5.

It doesn't occur in either browser if there are no spaces in the data.

Eg.

/scrips/FaxNumber.asp?param=unit id&data=6

Will return the "400 Bad request.." error in Netscape, not IE5.

While

/scrips/FaxNumber.asp?param=unitid&data=6

Will work in both (note no space - 'unitid'

Is there a way around this, as I require spaces??

What you have to do is replace all the spaces with %20


if the querystring comes from another page then reformat it before it's written with

<%
replace(querystring,chr(32),"%20")
%>

i think chr(32) is a space. i can't find my ascii chart. if it doens't work just use " ". does the same job.

where querystring is the variable containing the text to be added to the querystring

if that's no good jsut hard code %20 in place of all spaces
