This may not be 100% complete, but the coding you see is the encoding of the submitted data -- a ? to show the parameters are starting, the name of the parameter and then = value of the parameter, a & is used to show start of a new parameter. Often escape characters are inserted for certain other characters (for instance a %20 is put in for a space).

the reason i asked about a get or post was the get will automatically put the parameters in the url but if it is a post you have to create a query string to add to the url. I don't know if they url will look any different between the two so i was going to go look at some of my pages using both and see if any strange characters were added to one or the other. But %20 and such are not unusual, if that is what they were referring to.

Because web browser MUST have consistency of data for sent to server.
Data encoded by browser before send data to server.
