Many thanks to Dev, Eike and Rafael for your helpful comments, they are 
much appreciated.

I have updated the ENCODEURL page and hopefully addressed all 
significant points (although I may have ignored the odd typographical

the wiki).

I decided that the tabular format for examples wasn't working on this 
page, some of the URLs were just too long. I've removed it but hopefully 
that won't detract from the usefulness of the page.

Please let me know if you are still unhappy with anything on the 

I will address the other two pages over the next couple of days.
