Ive been trying to work with some url encoding and decoding options in VB.net and I already know of urlencode and urldecode however Id like to investigate further.

Ive been reading the article at 'http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_urlencode.asp' which seems to suggest that every character is encoded to Hex, but surely characters such as abcdefghigklmnopqrstuvwxyz are ok and doesnt need to be converted.

Does anyone have a list of the characters which need to be encoded to URL safe? I know characters such as % and & need to be encoded, but what others?

Thank you
