Are you suggesting that any URI reference in HTML document takes the
encoding of the HTML document? For example, if the HTML document uses
"shift_jis" encoding, the URI references in the document will be "shift_jis"
encoded.

If so, does this mean that URIs in "shift-jis" encoded HTML document can not
use UTF-8 encoding? (Otherwise you get mixed encoding here.)
