When the user:

1. Has a form with an input that contain the character “.

2. Uses jQuery to serialize this form, and submit it to a server via an AJAX request.

Unexpected result:

1. Server side this character is received as “.

Expected result:

The “ character should be received server side as “, since that is what would happen if you hit the submit button on the same form.


This is using Windows XP and Chrome 21.0.1180.79 m.

Sounds like your character encodings are wrong. This isn't a jQuery bug. Please ask for help on a forum.“
