URL encoding makes sure that all browsers correctly transmit text in URL strings. Characters such as a question mark (?), ampersand (&), slash (/), and spaces might be truncated or corrupted by some browsers. Therefore, these characters must be encoded in a elements or in query strings where the strings can be re-sent by a browser in a request string.
