Here are the printable characters which need to be escaped, and their escape codes:

space = %20
! = %21
" = %22
# = %23
$ = %24
% = %25
& = %26
' = %27
( = %28
) = %29
, = %2C
: = %3A
; = %3B
< = %3C
= = %3D
> = %3E
? = %3F
[ = %5B
\ = %5C
] = %5D
^ = %5E
` = %60
{ = %7B
| = %7C
} = %7D
~ = %7E

Characters less than hex 20 and greater than hex 7e also need to be escaped.

Hope this helps!

By the way, my source is the javascript escape() function, which I used to empirically derive the above list. Here's the code for a page which will show you the above list plus the codes <0x20 and above 0x7e:

<html> <head><title>escape codes</title></head>
<body><script>
for (var i = 0; i < 256; i++) {
   str = String.fromCharCode(i);
   strEscaped = escape(str);
   if (str != strEscaped ) {
        document.write(str + " " +  "= " + strEscaped+"<br>\n" );
   }
}
</script></body></html>
