We're saying the same thing (although sloppily in my case ;-). All I meant was that the specific example of escaping allowable characters showed that LOAD was unescaping them, but in an example that didn't immediately blow up. I agree that it's problematic for LOAD to unescape the URL prior to use. -jn-
