I have to pass a Unicode URL; this is an example from my htaccess file

RewriteRule ^categories/([0-9]+)/?/([0-9]+)-([0-9]+)/?/( [_A-Za-z0-9-]+).html/?$ index.php?action=browse&cat=$1&page=$2&limit=$3

When using the above code I get the link like this


And when I change the ( [_A-Za-z0-9-]+) with ([^/.]*).
I get the perfect URL which look

And the site works in all the browsers (Firefox, opera, chrome) except the internet explorer.
When I load the site in internet explorer it always crush and I get the message (This tab has been recovered) and the site dont load the pages.

I tried I replace the ( [_A-Za-z0-9-]+) with (.*) but the site didnt work at all.
Is there a solution to fix this?

Thanks in advance
