    Cyrillic encoding with getURL


      I am creating a swf for use on a Russian website.

      I have search box that the customer enters their search term which I then concatenate to the URL string in the getURL method.

      When i use western characters this work fine but when i use cyrillic characters it breaks.

      Does anyone know a way round this?

      Or a way to output the characters using UTF-8?


      Code Below


      on (release, keyPress "<Enter>")
           if (search_text != "" && search_text != " " && search_text !=  undefined)
              var newURL = "http://www.WEBADDRESS.com/variable="+search_text;
               getURL(newURL, "GET");
      'search_text'  variable refers to input field.
