InternetCanonicalizeUrl question

I'm trying to post the contents of a text file to a website.  The problem is that when I call InternetCanonicalizeUrl, it removes all the newline characters.  So if the text file looked like:

This is
the text

it gets encoded as

This%20isthe%20text

What is the correct way to post text to a website and keep the newline character intact?

>>when I call InternetCanonicalizeUrl, it removes all the newline characters

Newline characters are usually not supposed to be part of an URL - have you tried the 'ICU_NO_ENCODE' flag?

BTW, if that does not work, you might consider using an alternative approach like http://www.codeproject.com/string/urlencode.asp

I tried ICU_NO_ENCODE already, but it had the same problem.

I took a look at the link, but I'm not using MFC for this project.  I'm considering just replacing the newline characters with <br> and then encoding the string, but I was hoping there was some easier way to do it.

The interesting part of the encoding function does not use MFC :o)
