This function would perform URI escaping as currently defined by the 
Serialization specification.  If this function is adopted, then the 
Serialization specification would reference this function definition when 
describing URI-escaping in the character expansion phase.  


fn:escape-html-uri($uri as xs:string?) as xs:string 

This function escapes all characters except printable characters of the US-
ASCII coded character set, specifically octet ranging from 32 to 126 
(decimal).  The effect of the function is to escape a URI according to how html 
user agents would handle attribute values that expect URIs.  Each character in 
$uri to be escaped is replaced by an escape sequence, which is formed by 
encoding the character as a sequence of octets in UTF-8, and then representing 
each of these octets in the form %HH, where HH is the hexadecimal 
representation of the octet.  This function must always generate hexadecimal 
values using the upper-case letters A-F.

If $uri is the empty sequence, returns the zero-length string.


	The behavior of this function corresponds to the recommended handling 
of non-ASCII characters in URI attribute values as described in Appendix B.2.1
