Hello, All.

I am trying my best to NOT have to encode the apostrophe in a URL name to this: Nothin%27_to_Lose.
I have tried to replace the apostrophe with a * or a Period, and when I do a Request.QueryString("Title") on this
Nothin*_to_Lose
It is replaced with
Nothin

What am I missing here?
Does the Request.QueryString() not work with these types of characters?
