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:

[code]
<%=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; }}") %>
[/code]
