Just to make sure I got this - are you saying that if I remove [NE]
from the RewriteRule, then mod_rewrite will NOT convert %20 in a
requested URI to a space?

If that is what you are saying, then I think that is incorrect.

Try this:
  http://simpy.com/user/otis/search/apache%20httpd

That URL is handled by the following RewriteRule:

RewriteRule      ^/user/(.*)/search/(.*)$      
/simpy/User.do?username=$1&q=$2 [P,env=URR:1]


This results in the following request under the hood:
GET /simpy/User.do?username=otis&q=apache httpd HTTP/1.1" 400 369 "-"
"-"
                                   ^^^^^^^^^^^^

Note the space between "apache" and "httpd".


On the other hand, this works:
  http://simpy.com/user/otis/search/apache+httpd

Thanks,
Otis
