using ; in an url

Hi,

I'm using jsp & struts to build my menu. I'm using url rewrite (html:rewrite) for building my url's. When my users are blocking cookies automaticly a session id is added to the url like this:
/iwt/algemeen/brochures.jsp;jsessionid=A6C2740FE57FAF195DE34027B96DA3AB?topNav=student

My problem is that the menu system recognizes the ; as the end of the url and so the session id and other information is lost when a user uses the menu.

Is there a workaround for this problem? Is there a way I could use ; in my url's?

Johan

so far i remember, you can escape the ;-sign. Try this: \;

Hi,

Try enclosing the text inside backquotes like this:

aI("text=link;url=`/iwt/algemeen/brochures.jsp;jsessionid=A6C2740FE57FAF195DE34027B96DA3AB?topNav=student`);

Note that they are backquotes and not normal quotes. On my British keyboard the backquotes key is to the left of the number 1 key above tab. Also , the character is ` if you want to use copy and paste.

Cheers
Andy
