That should do about the same thing, assuming that all of the data is being encoded properly. Do you have the source button available on your iRite instance? If so you should take a look at the source when you enter a pipe character to see if it is getting encoded. If it is then we will need to look closer into the server behavior to get an idea for what may be going on. To do this I will probably need some files and info from you so if it is needed I will open a ticket on this to exchange the files and info.
