View Full Version : php urlencode different from Googles urlencoding?

07-19-2005, 10:35 AM

if I search special characters on Google, like umlauts or chinese characters it will convert it to something like this:


This will be shown if I search for the "A umlaut" ().

If I try the same with php to urlencode the "A umlaut":

echo urlencode('')

The result is not %C3%84 but %C4

Anybody knows why?

PS: If I urlencode a "question mark" both Google and php urlencode is the same. But other are different like the umlauts or chinese characters. Also Wikipedia uses the same encoding like Google.
