Context: Microsoft JScript on Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit

var url = "http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=% FREE Call Forwarding&source=web&cd=27&cad=rja&ved=0CG8QFjAGOBQ";
var x = new URI(url);
var rMap = x.search(true);

When the .search is executed I get
Microsoft JScript runtime error: The URI to be decoded is not a valid encoding

The break occurs here
d.decodeQuery = function (a) {
return d.decode((a + "").replace(/+/g, "%20"))

It's probably complaining about the "q=% FREE Call Forwarding". The percent symbol in this case is not introducing an encoded value. In my own code I'll check for a % after unescaping and change it to something (not sure what yet). However, what can be done for URI.js?


I've fixed this in master - it will be included in the next release. thank you for your help!

QueryString data that cannot be decoded will now simply be returned undecoded - that way any decodable data can still be of use.
