Jquery.param encoding wrong

Hello, I think that the param function doesn't work well, it doesn't encode to the url format. For example :


return :


while it has to return :


This problem is present in the form plugin, the ajax.submit function use "param" and so it doesn't work well too.

jQuery encodes using encodeURIComponent() which is the recommended function to use in the situation, see: http://xkr.us/articles/javascript/encode-compare/ Also, make sure decodeURIComponent() is being used to manually decode parameters. The results above look like they were produced by escape(). That function doesn't escape the '+' character, among others. This would be interpreted as a space on the server i.e. '2+2=4' would be misinterpreted as '2 2=4'. Is there a situation in which the current behavior is broken for you?

I have just realized that the encodeURIComponent doesn't encode properly for the URL... I think that it's very important to have a function that encode for url, a mix between escape and encodeURIComponent. I know that the problem doesn't came directly from jquery, but it's a bug, for the ISO-8859-1 encoding (used in europe) it's a big problem, the param function (and all function that use it) becomes useless!

Like i said the form plugin use it in the ajaxSubmit function and so i can't use it without takingg care, in my target page, of the decoding.

Thanks and sorry for my english :S
