this is a first take of describing the issues around encoding non-ASCII 
characters in WebDAV URLs.

As usual, recent versions and HTML at... 

Feedback appreciated,

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 

	Title		: Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) URL constraints
	Author(s)	: J. Reschke
	Filename	: draft-reschke-webdav-url-constraints-00.txt
	Pages		: 10
	Date		: 2005-11-14
    Both WebDAV servers and clients frequently map URI-escaped characters
    inside a path segment to non-ASCII characters.  These mappings can
    only be interoperable if there is a consensus about the appropriate
    character encoding.  This document specifies a default encoding that
    is compatible with both the recommendations for URIs in HTML content
    and the "Internationalized Resource Identifiers" (IRI) specification.

    Furthermore, servers that implement a mapping to locally constrained
    names frequently do not support specific names, or silently map
    "similar" names to the same resource (for instance when content is
    stored in a filesystem that is case-preserving, but not case-
    sensitive).  For these cases, discovery and error signalling features
    are defined.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
