Problem with special characters using AJAX
|Reported by:||bluecat76||Owned by:|

I have setup a search suggestion and am observing following problem:
Special characters (in this case german umlaut äöü) are NOT included in Ajax calls ($.get or $.getJSON) in Internet Explorer.
1.) The query reads "search_suggestion.asp?query=süd" when output via alert or similar.
2.) Logging on the Webserver yields:
Request from Firefox(3, 3.5): search_suggestion.asp query=s%C3%BCd Request from IE (6, 7, 8): search_suggestion.asp query=sd
All encoding is in UTF-8. Maybe some AJAX-related function in jQuery removes special characters from the query? Please let me know, if you need more information on this.
