javascript_tag replacing whitespaces w/ '%20'

Hello,

  I have a form that tests if a title has been changed since the page
was loaded and the page has been submitted.  If the page title has been
changed then a confirm box will ask if the user wants to have the title
changed.    The problem is if the person hits cancel, all white spaces
in the title get replaced w/ '%20'.

Here's the code I was using:


<%=javascript_tag( "function confirmSubmit(){ var page_title_before=
'#{u @page.title}';
                                              var page_title_on_submit =
escape($('page_title').value);
                                            if( page_title_before !=
page_title_on_submit ){
                                                var
agree=confirm('Changing the title of this page will break any links or
bookmarks that refer to it.\\nPress \"OK\" to save with the new title,
or \"Cancel\" to revert to the original title.');
                                                 if(agree){ return true;
}
                         else{  alert( 'page_title_before-->>' +
escape(page_title_before) ); $('page_title').value = page_title_before;
return false; }
                                            }
                                              else{ return true; }}") %>
