Comment (by lloydbudd):

 davidmeade, you are very generous with applying the term standard. As I
 wrote, long before this Microformat, web developers and search engines
 have standardized on using dash in URLs to mean a space.

 %20 is ugly and awkward. Suggesting part of my argument is irrelevant does
 not further yours. It is relevant when I go to a blog and know that you
 have tagged articles about "daisy chains" so I can enter the URL
 http://example.com/tag/daisy-chains . That is an elegant web.
