At Tue Aug  9 10:59:55 2005 you stated, 
cg> ... allocated me a Username which contains the "@" char 
which n-o has used as a token separator ...

The ISP I switched to recently, has the same requirement.
My new userid is peasthope<at>cablelan.net.  There is a 
similar issue when you submit the password to the FTP 
server to get Bluebottle.

Well this is now solved as suggested long ago by 
Pieter Muller.  Just get pe.URI.Mod and pe.NetSystem.Mod, 
compile them up and submit your userid and password with 
the "troublesome" characters in escaped form.  Examples.
	ftp:download:peasthope%40gulfnet.sd64.bc.ca at bluebottle.ethz.ch
Then proceed as usual.

Simple changes in NetSystem.SetUser and NetSystem.Show 
let this work.

Ideally, the ESC and UnESC proceedures might fit better in 
Strings.   Hence, Strings.URIescape and Strings.URIunescape;
but as I understand, our add-on code is recommended to be 
in add-on modules.

My Oberon page has been updated and includes the URI 
escape topic.

Several errors were corrected.  Please let me know of any 
remaining defects you find.  Thanks.

Sorry for the long delay in completing this small project.
