Re: URL encoding of non ASCII characters
Some browsers may support a URL encoding that is based on ISO-8859-1 or some
other assumed default, so that you would represent an Umlaut letter as an
octet (byte) by ISO-8859-1 and then encode the result as %xx where xx is the
code in hexadecimal.
However, the modern and official method is based on UTF-8. You first
represent an Umlaut letter as two octets by UTF-8, then encode both as %xx.
