I have a URL parameter that has special characters on it, so I do URL encoding as such: my_url(:email => CGI.escape("email@example.com") Now, I would expect to call a CGI.unescape(params[:email]) on the action receiving this parameter, and this is true according to my functional tests. But when I tested this on the browser, it failed because, apparently, I didn't need to do any URL-decoding, and when I did it gave me "someemail+extension mail.com". Is there a built-in URL-decoding on the controller side? If so, how is it that it doesn't work on my functional tests. I tested this on Safari and Firefox 3 browser, by the way.
