Wrong encoding for URL when using AJAX load functions in Internet Explorer

When using the AJAX functions in jQuery (e.g. $.load(), $.get etc.) and if the url contains special characters like the Swedish "åäö", then it get converted to the wrong encoding before sending to the server. This only happens in Internet Explorer. My workaround is:

if ($.browser.msie) {

sUrl = encodeURIComponent(sUrl);

sUrl = sUrl.replace(/%2F/g, '/');

I think this may be a dup of #3611. Can you tell me the page encoding that you are using?

I will assume this is a dup of #3611.
