Subject: form value modifications by JavaScript before submission are lost
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 536b
Some websites alter the values of form fields using JavaScript before submitting data to the server. For instance, a banking website might cipher a password in the name of "additional security." Such websites don't seem to work with WWW-Scripter at this time, because when submitting a form with such JavaScript hooks, either that JavaScript doesn't seem to run, or its efforts are subsequently lost before the form data is actually transmitted. I intend to attach a failing unit test at a later point that demonstrates this problem.
