Some background to my problem: I am trying to use PayPal and PayPal
wants a url encoded string. They give an example that shows the url
Unencoded String: R. H. Moore & Associates
Encoded String : R%2E+H%2E+Moore+%26+Associates
You can see that they expect the $. to be encoded as %2E
I can easily work around the problem but I am just wondering what is the
correct interpretation. To my way of thinking encoding $. to %2E is url
safe, there is no way to misinterpret it.
Is PayPal right or wrong in how they expect an encoded url?
