Many characters cannot be sent in a URL, but must be converted to their hex encoding. These functions are used to convert an entire URI (a superset of URL) to and from a format that can be sent via a URI.

<script type="text/javascript">

var uri="http://roseindia.net/users/loginregistration.html";
document.write(encodeURI(uri)+ "<br />");
document.write(decodeURI(uri));

</script>
