Hi. I think the last thread on this issue was: http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Mail/Message/zope-Dev/1843637
From my reading of RFC2396 and RFC2277, the character set encoding for URLs is UTF8. This is confirmed by http://www.w3.org/International/O-URL-code.html .
Does this settle the issue on how to handle non-ascii strings in URLs? If so, is their anything stopping us allowing Unicode ids in Zope? This would involve patching OFS.ObjectManager.checkValidId to accept strings not in [0-9a-zA-Z\$\-_\.\+!\*'(),], and writing replacement urllib.quote and urllib.unquote methods for use by HTTPRequest.py.
If this is deemed a sane plan, I'd like to try getting this into Zope 2.7.
It would also be worth fixing Python's urllib.quote and urllib.unquote methods, but that is an issue for a seperate mailing list...
