[Mailman-Users] @signs in FORMs

I'm a bit confused [as always].  On the Member List page, all of the @signs 
that appear [e.g., in all the email addresses] are HTML encoded:  The 
member "jojo at newhost.com" ends up in the FORM for the list as
<INPUT name="jojo%40newhost.com_realname"
            type="TEXT" value="jojojo" size="22" >
<INPUT name="user" type="HIDDEN" value="jojo%40newhost.com" >

I see in web developer, that the fields are apparently submitted just that 
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="jojo%40newhost.com_realname"

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="user"


But I can't get my dumb program to update the member list [e.g., to turn on 
a 'mod' checkbox].  I'm busy debugging but I'm wondering: when my 
program submits the form fields, should it use the %40 form, or convert the 
fields back to @signs?  [At the moment I can't get it to work either way but 
I'd like to know which is correct].  Thanks!!
