#99 new defect

New schemes should make sure query part uses UTF-8

Description

Currently, http(s): schemes handle the query part with reference to the "document charset", whereas other schemes such as mailto: handle query parts based on UTF-8. We should say that new schemes should/must choose the later. (It's very difficult to introduce exceptions for new schemes.)

Martin said he might have some text he would add on this, based on latest svn submission.
