I am building a string which has special characters like %. This string needs to be passed in URL.
The string "Type" has the special character.

URL = test.asp?abc=" + Type

Now when I use request.querystring it throws junk characters.
How can I get the exact string which I have passed.

escape and unescape.

escape will add the special characters while unescape will change them back:

var url = "mypage.asp?abc="+escape("a b c");
