Encoded cookie names in ASP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a problem with ASP.Net page trying to read a cookie created by ASP. ASP automatically encodes any special character in the name; for eg: abc.xyz as abc%2Exyz. This is not understood to be same as abc.xyz by .Net
    Is there a way to stop ASP from automatically encoding the cookie names?

    Best Regards,

    Based on my knowledge. It's HTTP industry standard to encode special characters. To decode an HTML string, you can use methods in HttpUtility class.
