+Summary: MONO BETA 1 Bug in HttpUtility.UrlEncode()
+Description of Problem:
+There is a minor problem with the HttpUtility.UrlEncode static method, 
+and the same instance method on the HttpServerUtility class.  When URL 
+Encoding on MS.NET, it outputs HEX values in lowercase "%3a" compared to 
+MONO which uses uppercase "%3A".  Whilst I realize this is a minor issue, 
+one of my programs was doing a case sensitive string comparison on the 
+URL which was broken by this bug.  It should be a really small change and 
+will increase compatibility with MS.NET.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+using System;
+using System.Web;
+public class Test
+  public static void Main()
+  {
+  	string encoded = HttpUtility.UrlEncode("http://ximian?ximain&");
+	// Need to ensure HttpServerUtility instance methods fixed.
+  	Console.WriteLine(encoded);
+  }
+Actual Results:
+Expected Results:
+How often does this happen? 
+All the time on MONO.
