I'm trying to pass a URL to another URL in JSP.

someething like:

 <a href="http://www.mysite.com/?followOnUrl=<c:out value="${myForm.followOnURL} />"> Click for Link </a>


How do i make sure that the c:out data is escaped properly since it contains url.  I don't want my first page to misinterpret the followOnUrl variable.

Example?

I agree with  enachemc.  The solution looks something like this.
<%@ page import="java.net.URLEncoder"%>
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/?followOnUrl=<%=URLEncoder.encode(myForm.getFollowOnURL(),"UTF-8")%> />"> Click for Link </a>
