Polish language has two different, mainly incompatible, character sets, Windows
CP1250 and ISO 8859-2. I don't know which one is used when typing in URL bar,
but after passing them to %s they are encoded using Windows CP1250. This makes
using e.g. google quicksearch virtually impossible, since most Polish web pages
use ISO8859-2.

I don't know if it's only about polish characters, or, more generally, all
national characters.
