Preventing url encoding during form submit

angelblade27 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have a form which has a text box in it. Recently now users started entering & in the textbox ( which is now expected). However the problem comes that the & gets converted to %26 ( i saw this when i intercepted it via tamper data) which causes problems. I need it to submit the correct value ie & and not the url encoding version of it
