Bug #111961, was updated on 2000-Aug-15 07:31
Here is a current snapshot of the bug.

Project: Python
Category: Modules
Status: Closed
Resolution: Fixed
Bug Group: None
Priority: 5
Summary: urllib.quote and string.letters

Details: urllib.quote() uses string.letters for determining,
if a character is save to be used in an url. In 
Python 1.5.2. this was only 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ'.
This seems to have changed in Python1.6b1 (or maybe it
is the responsibility of the locale module) to 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz\337\340\341\342\343\344\345\346\347\350\351\352\353\354\355\356\357\360\361\362\363\364\365\366\
which changes the semantics of urllib.quote()
