If characters such as spaces and punctuation are passed in an HTTP stream, they can be misinterpreted when they are processed. URL encoding converts characters that are not allowed in a URL into character-entity equivalents. For example, when the characters < and > are embedded in a block of text to be transmitted in a URL, they are encoded as %3c and %3e.
