I originally posted on whatwg and am introduced here.

This is about Web addresses in HTML 5.

In 2 Parsing Web addresses at 2. Percent-encode all non-URI characters in w,
percent-encoding many characters includeing U+0025 percent sign.
But by this spec, if a Web address w is already escaped URL,
this process double-escape those characters.

For example, w is http://www.example.org/D%C3%BCrst,
on step 2, w comes to be http://www.example.org/D%25C3%25BCrst.
And on step 5, w is broken.

So it shouldn't escape percent sign,
and if you want to give percent sign, it must be already escaped.
