CGI loses percent sign

We have a web app ( a CGI) written in RPGLE and HTML that prompts for several data fields and writes a record to our web iseries.

When the Comments field contains a percent sign ("%"), the data file ends up without that symbol and the next character is gone, too.

Is there a simple way to fix this ?

Example text   ...   "test % sign"  comes in as  "test  ign" - 3 less characters.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A percent sign, along with the plus sign and ampersand, are special characters. You need to send them to your page encoded.
