No. It is the coder's responsibility to ensure that the value is a
properly encoded URI before it is serialized.

For href and other attributes that the HTML DTDs say take a URI value, the
XSLT spec only says that non-ASCII characters should be automatically

This is not equivalent to the broad stroke of applying URL-encoding to the
entire attribute value. It does not follow that '%' and ' ' in the value
should be forced to be '%25' and '%20' upon serialization, for example.
