           Summary: Always encode the path part of an URI as UTF-8
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://www.w3.org/2001/08/iri-
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org

>From <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=261929>.

WinIE 6 and Opera by default encode the path part of the URL as UTF-8, and use
the page encoding only for the query part. A proposed standard on
Internationalized Resource Identifiers
<http://www.w3.org/International/iri-edit/> says that UTF-8 should be
unconditionally used for all parts, and IE 7 beta preview2 reportedly works
this way, intentionally or not.

Safari uses the page encoding even for the path part, matching Firefox (see the
Mozilla bug mentioned above).

Besides the W3C test from the bug URL, the following page has been mentioned as
an example:
(there should be four photos, not four replacement images).
