Should escaped characters be in uppercase ?

The HTTP documentation is ambiguous..


Where the local naming scheme uses octet
values which are not allowed in the URL, these shall be represented in the
URL by a percent sign "%" followed by two hexadecimal digits (0-9, A-F)
giving the value for that octet.

I know that Lynx 2.3 sends lowercased escaped characters.
