    php urlencode different from Googles urlencoding?


    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.
