    Hi,

    what's the difference about Asp Server.UrlEncode and the Asp.Net
    Server.UrlEncode ?

    In asp:
    Server.UrlEncode("*") = %2A

    In Asp.Net:
    Server.UrlEncode("*") = *

    In Php
    urlencode("*") = %2A

    why ?

    You want to read RFC2396 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2396.txt) to understand
    what is valid in a URI.

    Section 2.3 deals with unreserved characters (which * is a part of) and
    says:

    " Unreserved characters can be escaped without changing the semantics of the
    URI, but this should not be done unless the URI is being used in a context
    that does not allow the unescaped character to appear."

    which, to me, implies ASP.Net is likely doing it right..
