You should use this method with care. Unescaping a string that has been previously unescaped can lead to ambiguities and errors.

Many Web browsers escape spaces inside of URIs into plus ("+") characters; however, the UnescapeDataString method does not convert plus characters into spaces because this behavior is not standard across all URI schemes.
