[Mono-dev] Patch for HttpRequest.cs
js at hotfeet.ch
Mon May 8 07:41:56 EDT 2006
I was talking about the encoding used during the URL decoding only. My
patch fixes that. Running the attached test program demonstrates the
need to call HttpUtility.UrlDecode with Latin1 encoding to match MS
behaviour. No matter what encoding is set in
HttpRequest.ContentEncoding, MS.NET always URL decodes "%e4" to "ä", so
it must _always_ be calling
Or am I missing something? Any feedback appreciated!
