Return Value

The URL-encoded text.

URL encoding ensures that all browsers will correctly transmit text in URL strings. Characters such as ?, &, /, and spaces may be truncated or corrupted by some browsers so those characters must be encoded in <A> tags or in query strings where the strings may be re-sent by a browser in a request string.
