ö or & etc. are allowed characters in an URL.
Sorry, but I don't understand your solution to access the

The w3c validator says this file is valid html.

The HTML may be valid, but the link still doesnÿÿt match the

*MUST* be in the form:
This is also the hostname to use in vhosts, etc.

User agents MAY (but need not) render that in the non-ASCII
form. Lynx doesnÿÿt (well mine ÿÿ I think thereÿÿs an option
to link libidn now).
