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????
