Apache RewriteRule redirecting to url with percent (%) sign

experts,

i am struggling with a rewriterule, i require a redirection to redirect to a link with a percent symbol, I know the redirect works, however it keeps on escaping the percent sign to %25 which I don't want.

here is what i need it to redirect to (subset)
_pin_letter&chld=%e2%bc%80|{ff0000}|000000&.png

here is my rewrite
RewriteRule ^something.com/markerlink\.php$ http://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chst=d_map_pin_letter&chld=%e2%bc%80|ff0000|000000&.png? [R,L]

here is what i get
http://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chst=d_map_pin_letter&chld=%25e2%25bc0|ff0000|000000&.png%3f

not what I was after, help appreciated.
