I suspect that the + characters are being interpreted as url-encoded  
spaces. You might want to look over your code and see if you can  
avoid manually serializing your form contents. It looks like you're  
working way too hard here:

> postBody: 'ID=' + aForm.ID.value + '&Name=' + aForm.Name.value +
> '&Description=' + aForm.Description.value + '&Tracking_Type_ID=' +
> aForm.Tracking_Type_ID.value + '&Script=' + aForm.Script.value +

This could just be postBody: aForm.serialize(),

Or maybe even simpler, use aForm.request() to replace nearly  
everything else in your function.

Have a look through the docs for more insight.
