Websites provide URLs that consists of octets. Some of those octets may be 
%-encoded, some may not. It's important to preserve the exact octets as they 
appear in the page. However, as one of the first things, khtml converts all 
characters from 8-bit to a 16-bit QString, so if the octets where not 
%-encoded they may now have been changed as part of the toUnicode 
transformation. The KURL constructor tries to undo this transformation in the 
constructor and then %-encode all non-ascii characters.
