I've got a textarea in this JSP and when I submit the page to another JSP, the query string doesn't contain the carriage returns that were in the textarea. How can I make it so they are passed into the query string? BTW I'm basically using the java to submit the page and using the txtarea.value when creating the query string if that helps any.

I'm using javascript to submit:

<SCRIPT language=javascript>
      function infocheck()
      {          
        if (from.value == "") {
          //alert("From is a required field . . . ");
          from.value = "N/A";
          //from.focus();
          }
        if (subject.value == "") {
          //alert("Subject is a required field . . . ");
          subject.value = "N/A";
          //subject.focus();
          }
        if (longDesc.value == "") {
          alert("Long description is a required field . . . ");
          longDesc.focus();
            return;}  
        document.location.href='emailsubmit.jsp?username=<%=username%>&topic=<%=topic%>&BU=<%=BU%>&shortDesc=<%=shortDesc%>&BusinessCritical=<%=BusinessCritical%>&longDesc='+longDesc.value+'&subject='+subject.value+'&from='+from.value;
        return;
      }      
</SCRIPT>

change this to
document.location.href='emailsubmit.jsp?username=<%=username%>&topic=<%=topic%>&BU=<%=BU%>&shortDesc=<%=shortDesc%>&BusinessCritical=<%=BusinessCritical%>&longDesc='+escape(longDesc.value)+'&subject='+escape(subject.value)+'&from='+escape(from.value);
        return;

Do I need to worry about wrap being set on the textarea?

Didn't work, it still just put the values side by side as if the white space is being taken out.

Before it wasn't putting the %20%0D%0A%0D%0A, I am guessing %20 = space, %0D = new line, %0A = carriage return. What do I do from here?
