Yes, good advice. I don't understand much in that area, yet.

There is no mention of url encoding in the manual.
I think this kind of stuff should be documented in the wiki. I can at least 
help with that.
First, I wonder where in the wiki to put this. I don't want to overburden the 
FAQ page. I am thinking to create a new section for contribution by the 
members of this list about advanced usage.

What I wish worked like a charm was getting the 2nd page of videos in the 
channel: http://overshoot.tv/node/340

As it turns out, only one issue in the list above give this warning:
  #11827  unescaped ampersands in result page
I don't know why.
