You have to replace many invalid characters by % codes. If you don't,
the resulting URI will be invalid even if it still works, but if there
are non-ASCII characters in the file path it will be a problem.

See the function make_URI() in src/text/strings.c, you'll have to do all
of that in the javascript.
