Subject URL encoding hostnames
Date Sat, 17 Nov 2001 21:34:40 GMT
(offtopic, but related...)

is "" a valid URL refering to the same resource
that "" does?

RFC 2616 section 3.2.3 seems to imply that, for comparison purposes,
they are the same.

RFC 2396 on generic URIs defines "server" in a way that doesn't allow
URI encoding, but that isn't specific to the http scheme, so it
could be overridden.

If a %-encoded hostname is valid in a URL, is it valid in a Host: header?

And, from the practical side, is there any reason to allow %-encoded
hostnames in URLs?
