Hi Miguel,

many thanks for your fix, but I think it's still not right.

When I manually add a "u" after the % in the browser adress bar it works, 

    sch%u00f6n (=Microsoft's output) works but
    sch%00f6n (that is what mono does now) does not work

Best Regards

This is a bug.  I just looked up the Microsoft documentation and we must
produce a string in the form %XXXX notation, we were trying to optimize
for %XX and %XXXX.

A fix is being checked into svn.
