Default querystring and special characters

Here is the my problem:

<select NAME="Supplier">
<option value="Tech&Lease">Tech&Lease</option>
</select>

<%SSupp= QueryString("Supplier")%>
Result is SSupp= Tech

In otherwords, I can only pull Tech part. How can I handle the "&" character.

Thanks

Interesting question. Im sure there is a way to do it using URLEncode.

IMO Why use one of the two or three characters that belong to a querystring, you have so many others to choose from. I would change my design plan of the page personally.

As I said 'im sure it can be...'
but Perhaps it cant. This theory may be supported by the fact nobody has given you a solution. Have your researched URLEncode? I believe this is the only way it may be able to be done.

As I said:

Yes, I failed to place a question mark at the end however it was a question...
