And just in case it is in the future, I'll spend the extra 20 second to type a message: The recommended function to use is encodeURIComponent instead of escape and decodeURIComponent instead of unescape. These functions work on a single value to be inserted as part of a URI. If you want instead to encode an entire URI, use the encodeURI and decodeURI functions, although these do not encode as many characters.
