URLEncode in asp.net

The Server.URLEncode method in classic asp worked great: it only encoded invalid url characters, producing a legal url string.

The URLEncode method I found for asp.net behaves strangely: it encodes EVERY character (maybe except for alphanumeric chars. . .??) in a url, even the legal ones.

so the following illegal url SHOULD be coded as

bad: http://www.google.com/my special folder/my page.html
good: http://www.google.com/my%20special%20folder/my%20page.html

the .net version even encodes the forward slashes (legal in url), so the resulting url is *wrong*

So: Is there a method in .net that behaves exactly like classic asp's Server.URLEncode() method?

no offense intended. . .

but you just gave me a single link with no explanation. i gave you the points. i feel that an 'A' should go to a carefully constructed and explained answer.

anyway, i had already tried what that link suggests, and maybe i had just implemented it wrong.

i'm not giving the C as a slap in the face, i'm just giving it to reflect the effort required to cut and paste a link, little effort needed.

anyway, the question was simple, and i suppose it warrants a simple answer.

sorry if that bugged you. i guess i should have given an 'A'. my bad. i'll change it if there's a way. I was thinking "C" = Average, not "C" = Crap.
