Why would you think WAUrlEncoder has nothing to do with url encoding?

url :=

String streamContents: [:stream |  
	url do: [:each | (WAUrlEncoder encode: each on: stream)]]

It just encodes on character at a time.  Which gives you an identical answer
up until _k, where I notice that Seaside doesn't encode _'s like your
examples do, but I believe Seaside is correct here, _'s don't need encoding.
