Subject RE: percent sign in URI

hi David;
I am aware of the case. As I stated before Apache2 server properly handles
that problem and I need that functionality because our customer's system
built on it.

Hello abdurrahman,

Your url is incorrect, replace it with

According to rfc 1738, 2.2. URL Character Encoding Issues

   Octets must be encoded ..., if the use of the corresponding character is
unsafe, ...
   The character "%" is unsafe because it is used for encodings of other
   Thus, only alphanumerics, the special characters "$-_.+!*'(),", and
reserved characters used for their reserved purposes may be used unencoded
within a URL.

There is no details in RFC on how to handle badly shaped urls (like % not
followed by 2 hex digits) and thus your urls should not rely upon this.
