Subject [httpclient] double encoding of %
Date Tue, 16 Jul 2002 16:24:46 GMT
Hi, I would like to vote the following bug:

double encoding of URLs

This bug was marked as invalid. But I believe that person doesn't really
understand the problem. The issue is you have to be able to copy a URL from
IE's address bar, put it in httpclient and it should just work. However,
when the path has space in it, IE will show %20 in the address bar and
httpclient will encode the % again. Please think hard about it before you
really decide it's invalid. My suggestion is that % should never be escaped.
If the user really wants a literal %, he can encode it himself.
