handle special characters from text area using
posted 15 years ago
I'm trying to use request.getParameter("TEXTAREANAME") when sending a request from a form via a JSP. But I get unexpected results when entering characters(i.e. ') in that text field. I understand I may have to attach a backslash to specify this character is literal(i.e \'). Is there anyway I can have this special characters tagged with the (\) or will I have to manually add this using String buffers replace method?
