Steps to reproduce

The W3C I18N WG in cooperation with WhatWG has created tests for the Encoding specification. In the course of testing, we found that the encoding done in hrefs is not consistent with the HTML specification or with what other browsers do. This causes Edge to fail all of the href encoding tests.

The problem is that instead of following the character encoding of the page, the href encodes the Unicode (UTF-8) byte sequence.
