Encoding The Ampersand(&) In A Url

I'm trying to use a popup window initiated from javascript to display pictures. Some of the directories and pictures contain &'s in the name or path. I've read the posts about Encoding but I cannot seem to get the get this working. Encoding the path to replace the & with %26 just gives me a page not found.

<script language="javascript">
function NewWindow(url, w, h)
url = "http://intranet/Marketing_Photos/" + url;
window.open(url,"_blank","width=" + w + ",height=" + h + ",left=0,top=0,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes");

url is the subdir and picture name, i.e. subdir/pic.jpg

Mareting_Photos is an IIS Virtual Directory pointing to a different server.
Everything works, the pictues display, except when I pass a url with an & in the path then I get the page not found error.

I can type in http//intranet/Marketing_Photos/SomeDir/Some%26PicName.jpg (replacing the & with %26) in the browser address bar but I get a page not found.

Ampersand - Querystring

I am trying to pass a variable in the URL to a popup window. One of the variables in the URL has a value of S&CSB. Whenever I try to get at this variable it returns only "S". I did URL encode the "&" ampersand (%26) and (&amp and (S%26amp%3B), so I don't get why it's not working. Looks to me like ASP Request.Querystring is parsing from the ampersand on. Code:

VBScript/ASP Related: Ampersand Assignment

Is this a "legal" assignment in VBScript? strSearchChar5 = "&"

Once I do this in script tags, it throws the rest of my page off, as far as the colors in Dreamweaver. Would the lack of colors mean anything?

The code that uses this variable works beautifully, yet when I use request.form on the following page, nothing shows when I use Response.Write.

This is what shows when I use Response.Write:

UPDATE jobs SET [SubmitDate]='',[category]='',[type]=''' ,[job_title]='',[job_number]='',[openings]=' ',[address]=' ',[city]=' ',[zip]=' '

XML-Encoding Problems

I'm using ASP to load an XML file. German Umlaute work fine all the
time (I use <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?> so they
should). Except this time where I add a text to a child which I then
fill with text which contains an "". The ASP-error is:

"An Invalid character was found in text content."
(Or I believe that's the English translation, I get a German one, as
I'm on a German system.)

I read something about this error however even some suggested fixed
don't work. I installed the latest MSXML (4) and use
"Msxml2.DOMDocument.4.0" for server-createObject.

Actually all I want to do is save some text coming from a textarea back
into a little file.

BASE64 Encoding

I've finished my whole application and now I don't like the whole
session variables that I am using. I have a form, user fills in info
clicks submit and using CDOSYSMail an email link gets created with an
encoded query string. i.e
http://www.yahoo.ca?#$@%@&#%#$@&^@%# which translates into

Now when the user get's this email and clicks on the link I have a
decode function(again using BASE64) that takes that url and decodes it
to http://www.yahoo.ca?userID=54&LocationID=Denver. My app then
connects to the database and pulls info associated with that
querystring. I am doing the passing from page to page using session
variables. I do not want to do this? Any ideas How I can take what
is encoded in the url link and decode it on the next page? Let me
know if there is a simple solution to this. I love the encode/decoding

Page Encoding - RSS

I am getting an error in my attempt to run RSS feeds via ASP

encoded as "utf-8", but your server is reporting "US-ASCII"
I've tried windows-1251 but do not seem to be able to change the output from the servers default

The problem is the data from an Access db contains hyphens and ampersands etc which cause a problem if the db content in the xml is read as US-ASCII

How can I encode the page in ASP so that it can display the correct encodingmfor xml.

Character Encoding

I have created ASP with database application over a PHP based software. My problem is I get data from Excel files with an encoding as SJIS (Shift-JIS) and save it to the database.

And the PHP software is the one that displays data in the web but using UTF-8 (unicode). I need an API in ASP that will convert charactrers from SJIS to UTF-8.

Encoding ASP Files

Does anyone know of a good way to encode/encrypt ASP files so the code is
hidden, but still able to be read by IIS when requested? I have done some
searches and have found that using vbscript.encode would work, but that it
is very weak and tools are readily available to decode them. I have also
seen two products that claim to do this, but they either just used
vbscript.encode, or didn't work even on extremely simple asp files.

Encoding French

I used "Request.Params["sName"]" on the Page_Load event.

I could not read the French like "é" If the sName has French, ie. if I pass the url like "webFom1?sName='abé'", then the Request.Params["sName"]"will equal to "ab", the "é" get choped.,
What should I do?

I used System.text; and set Request.contentEncoding =encoding.default or
Request.contentEncoding =encoding.utf-7, none of them works.

Can I ignore the encoding, if so how?

Transfer-Encoding: Chunked

When I get the following input stream of chunked data I ge
Request.TotalBytes = -1 because there is not Content-Length.

The following will work because I hardcoded the correct length:

TotalBytes = 16
strBRequest = Request.BinaryRead(TotalBytes)
I get: 16 bytes of data (see below)

However, if I don't know the length and try to use something > 16 li
100 then I get at error and the TotalBytes is set to 16 and th
strBRequest is empty.

Does anybody know how to determine how to get around this. I am usin
Transfer-Encoding: chunked because I do not know how much data is bein
uploaded (could be very very large).

POST /test.asp HTTP/1.1
Accept: */*
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Hebrew Encoding Issue

I have an asp page that shows the contents of HTML files in a textarea using the Server.HTMLEncode method.
It works perfectly with HTML files having english contents.
When trying to show HTML with Hebrew I see all the text correct, except the hebrew part, appearing as jibberish.
I use the hebrew encoding "windows-1255" in all the files with codepage=1255 in the beginng of the asp page.
Using a special text editor I detected the encoding of the jibberish text - it's windows-1252.The problem started when i uploaded the page to a remote server. in my local server it runs ok.I should say that all the html pages are readable when entering their url in the browser and i can also make changes in hebrew to a database using asp (from that remote server).I think the problem has something to do with the way the remote server opens the file.

Encoding Problem With MS Access

We have a MS Access database, and we are working with greek encoding. When we insert data into the database, it's fine, everything in the database is stored properly in greek. However, when we retrieve from the database, everything is return as "????S???" (something like that with a lot of question marks).

What we've tried so far are adding CODEPAGE="1253" on top of the script, but that doesn't seem to help. I also tried response.Charset="UTF8", but no luck.

Anyone know what else can I try to have the data being retrieved with proper encoding?

Xml, Character Encoding, Asp Question

I've been doing a lot of work both creating and consuming web services, and
I notice there seems to be a discontinuity between a number of the different
cogs in the wheel centering around windows-1252 and that it is not equivalent
to iso-8859-1.

Looking in the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTMIMEDatabaseCharset and
Codepage, it seems that all variations on iso-8859-1 (latin1, etc) are
mapped to code page 1252, which I'm assuming is windows-1252 in execution
terms. So if I set the codepage=1252 and Response.Charset=iso-8859-1 in ASP,
it seems that I'm *really* going to get out windows-1252, not iso-8859-1.

This becomes somewhat noticable in html since a lot of commonly used elements
(like the free-floating bullet •), which *aren't* really 8859-1, get
interpreted as such in browsers. Code:

ASP Code For RFC2104 HMAC Encoding

I need to convert the following PHP code to work in ASP (not .net) and I'm a little lost!

// Calculate signature using HMAC: http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2104.html

function calculate_RFC2104HMAC ($data, $key) {
return base64_encode (
pack("H*", sha1((str_pad($key, 64, chr(0x00))
^(str_repeat(chr(0x5c), 64))) .
pack("H*", sha1((str_pad($key, 64, chr(0x00))
^(str_repeat(chr(0x36), 64))) . $data))))

This code is directly from Amazon as part of the web
services, required for each submission. They have a lot
code samples but nothing in ASP. Any helpers ?
