MBS( "Text.EncodeToURL"; "Hello World"; "utf8" )

Example result: Hello+World

Encode and Decode with umlauts and UTF-8:

$v = "Hello öäü"
$e = MBS( "Text.EncodeToURL"; "$v; "utf8" )
# e has now value "Hello+%C3%B6%C3%A4%C3%BC"
$d = MBS( "Text.DecodeFromURL"; $e; "utf8" )
# d has now value "Hello öäü"
