Hi Oleg,

I'm using OE (Offline Explorer Pro 3.9 on Windows Server 2003) to maintain the french educational search engine Spinoo and I have a problem with sites whose url have filenames with the symbol % (for accented characters). Those files are saved with other filenames in which % are replaced with _25 and they are incorrectly indexed, which causes dysfunctions with Spinoo.
I've read on this forum that you plan to work on Unicode support to fix a similar problem, which interests me very much. I'd like to be warned when it will be done.

I am afraid that % symbols issue will be not changed in the future. The problem is that browsers do not treat % symbols correctly in filenames when browsing directly from the hard disk.
