It is related to whatever is generating the HTML that includes the link.
What is generating the HTML?

The problem is that the character in question might have different ASCII
value, depending on character set. When opening (the text file) in Internet
Explorer it might get the right encoding, while, when it is sent to Acrobat
Reader, it might get the wrong encoding, or it doesn't encode it at all, or
perhaps double-encode it.

It may work if you could make sure the character set is correct in the
headers of the response that includes the link, but I don't know.

No. Although, you might be able to fix bad requests with mod rewrite.

Another possible workaround is to use mod_speling.
