Oh, my bad. I assumed we were talking about form submissions.  It is
possible I am mistaken even for those cases, though.

For links, if they are invalid (i.e. not correctly escaped), I believe
Mozilla will use the document encoding to form the URIs.

As I said, though, there is no spec (to my knowledge) that defines this.
