If you go here <> then to
HTTP (POST) you'll see what i mean. I'm specifically talking about
file upload using HTTP Post with form values. When you are putting in
a form
value for the file upload, it unfortunately uses comma as a separator.
 Is there a workaround to this? I'd like to be able to support
filenames with commas in them (as there is no reason they cant
necessarily have commas)
