Subject: URI::_query doesn't cope with XHTML-encoded URLs per W3C recommendation

Download (untitled) / with headers

The W3C recommends using ';' instead of '&' when encoding URL parameters. http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/appendix/notes.html#h-B.2.2 URI::_query can't cope with URLs that follow the W3C recommendation. It hard-codes '&' instead. This problem was reported (and a fix supplied) in http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bug.html?id=27 , which may be getting low visibility since it is on the "Wish List". The emergence of XHTML, and the W3C recommendation, raises the priority of this problem. Thank you for your consideration.
