Hi List,

I am using Flash LoadVars.send() to http:GET to an asp server page. The 
asp server page posts an email with the results *but* anywhere a pound 
sign is show it is preceded with a rogue char e.g.

£25,000 to £35,000

the text for this string is taken from a flashUI combo box label as shown:

<code type="actionscript">

varSender = new LoadVars();
	// assign the properties to the varSender object
	// ...these variables are sent to the server.
	varSender.Current_Income = dd7.getSelectedItem().label;
	//Send variables to server and catch reply in new browser window.
	varSender.send(_level0.varsenderurl, "_self", "GET");

The combo box labels do not show an errant char.....


Any thoughts on what is happening?

n.b. Am using GET becuase apparently windows flash player does not POST!
