Sorry, I probably wasn't clear enough.  The document at that data: URI is:

<!doctype html><body style="background-image: 
url(http://räksmörgås.josefsson.org/raksmorgas.jpg">

The bit inside the url() isn't a URI, is it?

Yes that's my concern.  Or what url("http://exämple.org/") refers to, or 
whether it's valid at all.
