           Summary: VisualEditor: Use multipart/form-data encoding when
                    POSTing HTML
           Product: VisualEditor
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: MediaWiki integration
    Classification: Unclassified

Per Gabriel's report via email, when VE POSTs HTML, it uses
multipart/x-www-urlencoded to encode the POST body, which results in a lot of
URL-encoding of special characters (especially <>") in the HTML. We should
instead use multipart/form-data , which is more efficient for such large POST
bodies with many special characters.

TODO: Figure out how to tell the browser to use this encoding when sending an
AJAX request.
