By checking out the RFC 3986 I was wondering, if a server which works as
a redirector / counter and gets a double encoded URL like
as a parameter should decode this one before passing it to the users
browser or just do nothing (and cause an error), because the last
sentence in the RFC 3986 2.4 says:
"Implementations must not
percent-encode or decode the same string more than once, as decoding
an already decoded string might lead to misinterpreting a percent
data octet as the beginning of a percent-encoding, or vice versa in
the case of percent-encoding an already percent-encoded string."
Does anyone know where I could find something about this?
