The specs are about to be changed. I know it's still in some kind of beta state, but international characters are about to be allowed in URLs. As an example (I take it from your name that you're danish, Holger), have a look at http://www.ĝ (I have succeeded in viewing this URL with MSIE on windows, but not on my Linux machine).

Yes, but there's one thing to keep in mind. The following does NOT work: print read to-url to-string because rebol identifies the url as an url and interprets it the wrong way before my to-string is evaluated. So if one receives a url through a referencing word, say 'my-word, then one has to get the string with something like my-string: rejoin [{"} my-word {"}] before converting it to a URL. ~H
