Thanks DZ-Jay. I think we need to add a more complete function, ..just what to do if we need to encode (correctly) a full URL to use with HttpCli? ...It was my problem the last week!!
I have "hijacked", converted and shared a full URL encoder from Indy10.0.52 http://www.mcrenox.com.ar/uri.pas enjoy!
