Input tag changes space to +

Recommended Posts

I have an HTML input tag that can contain spaces. When I read the 'post' data the spaces are changed to '+' rather than '%20'. I run that data through Python 3 'unquote' and all the special characters are converted as appropriate. I suppose I can replace the '+' with a space but that raises 2 questions:

1. Why is the space not sent as '%20'?

2. How do I tell the difference between '+' as a space and '+' as a character in the string?
