Ummm......

Ok, so IE shows the proper / and Firebird shows the improper HTML escape code, %2F.

Sounds like a Firebird bug to me.

Safari does the same thing.. that's kind of the way it's typed if you looked at the code..

It should be typed that way in the code, otherwise the / might be interpreted as an HTML command, instead of actually displaying the correct character.

So, in that sense, IE is correct in the way it is displaying things.

The part that is INCORRECT and sloppy programming on Microsoft's part, is they should have LIMITED it to only a certain set of characters instead of parsing EVERY escape/control code.
