Encodes a text value to be used in a query part of a URL.

Some ASCII characters, such as commas and brackets, are considered to be unsafe inside an argument, so they need to be encoded. Non-ASCII characters must also be encoded. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Query_string for information about URL encoding. See http://www.blooberry.com/indexdot/html/topics/urlencoding.htm for a list of URL codes.
