U+00F6 is the Unicode codepoint but URI percent encoding never directly
uses codepoints as you can encode only a single byte at a time and the
range of Unicode codepoints is much larger than that (up to U+10FFFF).
As Krzysztof already wrote, byte-wise encoding of UTF-8 strings is the
generally recommended way to encode URIs. See also the following links:
