Querystring corruption with Netscape 7.0 in showDocument(URL)
Posted on 2003-03-14
I have a querystring that I send to a shell script with showDocument(). A perl script writes the string to an html file. I have embedded tags in the string, such as <BR>. The tags work when the string is sent with IE 6 or Netscape 4.7. With Netscape 7.0, the <BR> tag comes out written as %3CBR%3 in the HTML file. A println check in the code outputs the correct string to the java console. Anybody know why 7.0 VM does that? Is there a fix? I like the format in the HTML file because it is printing data collected in an Applet.
