"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Encoded URL's use exactly the same encoding, no language does it differently since every encoded character is the same when en/de coded
How are you encoding it? Are you sure you are only encoding the querystring pair value

That is also known as "Percent" encoding because of the use of the % sign.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent-encoding  The example you give above decodes to a JSON string.
