It states that international characters should be encoded in UTF-8 in
URLs. Byte sequences of UTF-8 are writen as %xx in URLs. This means that
%C5%82 is character which is in UTF-8 represented by sequence of two
bytes C5 82. Hower this doesn't represents Unicode character U+C582, but
U+0142 (latin small letter l with stroke -- ł). 
Only problem is that many applications treat URL not as UTF-8 encoded,
but ISO-8859-1 encoded.
