:-) The comma (as well as the semicolon) can be used as a cookie separator. Here's my
newest version of url-encode, complete with comments.
url-encode: func [
"URL-encodes a string."
value [string!] "The string to encode"
] compose [
url-encoded-string: make string! ""
normal-char: (charset [ #"A" - #"Z" #"a" - #"z" #"0" - #"9" "$-_.!*'()" ])
; normal chars are defined as per HTML 4.01 specs, section 18.104.22.168, referring to RFC
1738, section 2.2
; "+" is not a normal char here because it encodes " "
; "," is not a normal char here because it is a special char as per RFC 2109, section
parse/all value [
copy char normal-char (append url-encoded-string char) |
copy char " " (append url-encoded-string "+") |
copy char newline (append url-encoded-string "%0D%0A") |
copy char skip (append url-encoded-string reduce ["%" skip tail (to-hex 0 + first
