    Question How to Accept Control Characters in HTML Text Box?

    Does anyone know how to accept control characters like control-b (^B), control-c (^C), etc in an HTML text box?

    Currently, the value entered into the text box gets treated as a string consisting of "^" and "B" (assuming ^B was entered) rather than a control character.

    As far as I know, there's no way to do it directly in HTML. Enter the "^B" as you described and then convert it on your server.
    Having said that, I've probably told you more than I know.
