AJAX string functions characters that won't work
I am working on a script that does a simple check on strings that users input as usernames.
Everything works, exactly as expected with the exception of one item.
I am assuming that the problem I see with this script is associated with some sort of Java script limitation, so I have decided to ask the professionals.
I am using an onkeyup to pass characters to a php script that checks the input string to be the correct length, using characters that are allowed for use and presenting the user with a red light or green light to continue.
All characters seem to work fine with the exception of three "&, #, and +". The Java onkeyup does not seem to pass these three characters to the php. Why? and ..... is there a workaround?
