public static HttpEncoder Default { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.Util.HttpEncoder

A reference to the default encoder.

A common encoding issue is that the default ASP.NET UrlEncode behavior converts spaces into the "+" character. Historically, the "+" character has been an Internet convention for encoding space characters in a URL into a more human-readable manner. However, according to standards, the space character is supposed to be encoded as "%20" and instead of as the "+" character. ASP.NET lets you implement a more standards compliant encoding algorithm.
