Webbrower anchor tag retrieval

Hello,

I have a problem when retrieving a anchor 'a' tag with the twebbrowser document object.  

Specifically when the hyperlink contains a space - this gets converted to a '+' sign in the text source file (view source from browser) but when the string is viewed in delphi (and used) the part of the hyperlink which contained the '+' is missing causing the link to fail.
i.e.

&psuburb=mona+vale&

is part of the hyperlink in question yet when viewed from the delphi variable (string) I get

&psuburb=&

I know how to hande the & but not missing data.

I have even tried getting the Inner html from the underlying table row in the document with the same result.

Any ideas????

Use the httpdecode function in httpapp.pas to decode
the URL returned and httpencode to send it back encoded.
