asmodai has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Well met fellow Monks,

I have a question concerning HTML::Template.</P.

I am using it fine up to now, where I want to use the ESCAPE=URL parameter.

<A HREF="<TMPL_VAR ESCAPE="URL" NAME="name">">Edit data</A>

Now, when I get a page which fills in name it won't change the spaces to +'s like the manual page tells me this mode should.

Any hints, tips or ideas to ponder over in meditation?

    After pondering the issue some more:

    It seems the escaping in IE 5.5x becomes visible only after you select the link. At least on my NT testbox here. w3m on my FreeBSD box showed it directly. *sigh*

    I'll go back to meditating now.
