Hello Mike,

Many thanks for your comment.

Can it? It can't in an URI. Well, checking the syntax in the interim
draft (http://www.w3.org/International/iri-edit/draft-duerst-iri.txt),
I found

  ichar          = << allowed character of the UCS [ISO10646] >> |
                   space | idelims | unwise

  idelims        = "<" | ">" | "#" | "%" | <">

This is definitely a good catch! Actually, further down in that interim
draft, I found:

8. Change log

    Changes from -01 to -02

    -  Removed '%' @@@@ and '#'@@@@ from delims.

The @@@@ is a sign that this still has to happen.
So I just made it happen, and updated the draft.
There are some other loose ends that will be
tied up soon, but this was definitely the biggest
one.

Again, thanks for noticing it.

Regards,    Martin.
