    Default Too Funny....why character encoding works

    I just ran across this:
    http://wantingseed.com/sprout/2007/1...ct-your-webapp

    It's a funny read. Apple doesn't allow you to use "script" as any part of a search term so if you try to search something valid like "applescript" on their site, you end up with results for "apple" because they filter out the "script" part of your string.

    Note the comments apples%43ript does return the proper results for "applesCript".

    Too funny!

    We've been talking about different character encoding schemes in a few threads so I thought this was perfectly timed.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    HHmmm...Interesting.

    I wonder if this would work with our forums search engine for looking for terms shorter than 4 characters??


    Nahhh,,...probably not.
