I have to save user input.

<textarea class='darkGrayText' name='dialTip' id='dialTip' rows='5' cols='40'>

If user writes "Contact # 1234567890" then on the server side when I try to get "dialTip" as

String dialTip = request.getParameter("dialTip");

I only get the string "Contact" ie. the input string get truncated as soon as the '#' char. appears.
