Subject: Re: [Caml-list] escape characters in a cgi parameter

  Thanks Richard!!

  You was right. Escape characters is very easy. You must put the 
character % and then the ASCII number in hexadecimal. 

  For example, if you want to escape the character =, you must write 
 %3D (3D is the ASCII number of the character = in hexadecimal)
