Public Shared Function UrlDecodeToBytes ( encodedValue As Byte(), offset As Integer, count As Integer ) As Byte()
If characters such as blanks and punctuation are passed in an HTTP stream, they might be misinterpreted at the receiving end. URL encoding converts characters that are not allowed in a URL into equivalent hexadecimal escape sequences. The UrlEncodeToBytes method creates a URL-encoded byte array.
URL decoding replaces hexadecimal escape sequences with corresponding ASCII character equivalents. For example, when embedded in a block of URL-encoded text, the escape sequences %3c and %3e are decoded into the characters < and >.
