i found a class on w3c but it does not work i place mu content in parameters but before i do dat i call the encoding class. I must mention that i am using Polish characters in the url and while encoding i get bad characters ?? what is wrong is the W3C class wrong??


public class URLUTF8Encoder {

/**
* Encode a string to the "x-www-form-urlencoded" form, enhanced
* with the UTF-8-in-URL proposal. This is what happens:
*
* <ul>
* <li><p>The ASCII characters 'a' through 'z', 'A' through 'Z',
* and '0' through '9' remain the same.
*
* <li><p>The unreserved characters - _ . ! ~ * ' ( ) remain the same.
*
* <li><p>The space character ' ' is converted into a plus sign '+'.
*
* <li><p>All other ASCII characters are converted into the
* 3-character string "%xy", where xy is
* the two-digit hexadecimal representation of the character
* code
*
* <li><p>All non-ASCII characters are encoded in two steps: first
* to a sequence of 2 or 3 bytes, using the UTF-8 algorithm;
* secondly each of these bytes is encoded as "%xx".
* </ul>
*
* @param s The string to be encoded
* @return The encoded string
