I have a website that using Coldfusion and it works fine. I have been trying to get the same website to work on a server running Unix and Railo. I have page that has a form with a textbox. When the form is submitted and the text contains an & I am finding that the submitted text is being truncated at the location of the &.

What do I do to be able to submit text that may contain a & (or any other characters that Railo has a problem with)?

Thank you
