A small Wiki about URL Encoding

URLs can only be sent over the Internet using the ASCII character-set. Since URLs often contain characters outside the ASCII set, the URL has to be converted into a valid ASCII format. URL encoding replaces unsafe ASCII characters with a "%" followed by two hexadecimal digits. For example, URLs cannot contain spaces. So, URL Encoding normally replaces a space with a "%20".

NOTE When "Raw Encode or Decode" is checked, the app Encodes/Decodes the given string according to RFC 3986.
