Why is that a problem?  All browsers tested agree that the path for this 
URI is "/People/D%FCrst" as literally typed and as evident by observing 
the HTTP request.  That seems to align with my understanding of RFC3986 
and 3986's treatment of the %FC which if decoded would be illegal UTF-8.

Best regards,
