Non-ASCII characters are not allowed in a URL (in its external string representation, the input of the parser), they must be encoded.

When you construct a URL from parts, the encoding will be done for you, as you specify unencoded elements.

'https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki' asUrl addPathSegment: 'prÍt'; fragment: #French; yourself.

  => https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/pr%C3%AAt#French

'https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/pr%C3%AAt#French' asUrl.

And you would be correct to remark that web browsers do allow this, which is more a UI thing.
