Re: Fwd: [Lynx-dev] lynx not honoring apache document root path

Hello Thomas,

So it was the encoding all along!
I changed it now to: "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" and indeed,
it just works now.
I also tested with other browsers and they seem to be fine with it.

But I am curious: do you think this is something a lot of people get
wrong? Because that would mean that this is a bigger problem then it
seems. And I have no idea how much browsers actually do with the
enctype parameter...

Thanks a lot !!!!

Lynx sees the encoding type and decides to present the data as plain text.
RFC 1866 does not describe what happens for that choice - only notes
that the default is application/x-www-form-urlencoded

I'm looking to see if there is an applicable reference, but am guessing
this is a deprecated feature which is not recognized by the other
browsers - so they happen to send the query with the default encoding.
