I'm trying to create a rule using Chinese characters
#RewriteRule ^zh(.*) /中文版$1 [L,R=301]
creates error 500 when i change the file to UTF-8
#RewriteRule ^zh(.*) /%E4%B8%AD%E6%96%87%E7%89%88$1 [L,R=301]
redirects to /%25E4%25B8%25AD%25E6%2596%2587%25E7%2589%2588 (basically replacing % with %25)
Anybody familiar with this problem?
