Use HtmlTextWriter.EncodeUrl Method  
Performs minimal URL encoding by converting spaces in the specified URL to the string "%20".

Namespace: System.Web.UI
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

Sample from msdn
// If an <anchor> element is rendered and an href
// attribute has not been defined, call the AddAttribute
// method to add an href attribute
// and set it to http://www.cohowinery.com.
// Use the EncodeUrl method to convert any spaces to %20.
if ( TagKey == HtmlTextWriterTag::A )
{
   if (  !IsAttributeDefined( HtmlTextWriterAttribute::Href ) )
   {
      AddAttribute( "href", EncodeUrl( "http://www.cohowinery.com" ) );
   }
}
