Sending foreign characters to a modalDialog using 'window.showModalDialog'

Hello,

I am writing a c# asp.net application in which i want to open a modal dialog and sent parameters to it.

var retVal = window.showModalDialog('EntitiesList.aspx?name=" + name, window, 'dialogWidth:220px;dialogHeight:200px,top=300,left=400,');

When my 'name' parameter contains foreign characters (for example, Montó or María), the value received at the destination page has a square (box) instead of the special letter.

How can i send the special characters to my destination page?

Thank you

Try following
var retVal = window.showModalDialog('EntitiesList.aspx?name=" + escape(name), window, 'dialogWidth:220px;dialogHeight:200px,top=300,left=400,');

Open in new window

I tried 'escape' but it didn't help.
When i debug the application i see that i send the correct value, but in my cs page it is not received properly.

I am using:

name = Request["name"];

I am not familier with ASP,
but try to set proper endocing while sending response for that,
try using ISO-8859-1 or ISO-8859-2 instead of UTF-8 (the defult one, I guess).
