Example:
string html = "<title>this is the Test Title</title>";
string url = "http://www.domain.com?q=test&a=123&g=test";

Console.WriteLine("UrlEncode: {0}", url.UrlEncode());
Console.WriteLine("UrlDecode: {0}", url.UrlDecode());
Console.WriteLine("UrlPathEncode: {0}", url.UrlPathEncode());
Console.WriteLine("HtmlEncode: {0}", html.HtmlEncode());
Console.WriteLine("HtmlDecode: {0}", html.HtmlDecode());

int idx = url.IndexOf('?');
String querystring = null;
if (idx >= 0)
{
	querystring = (idx < url.Length - 1) ? url.Substring(idx + 1) : String.Empty;
}

System.Collections.Specialized.NameValueCollection coll = querystring.ParseQueryString();
Console.WriteLine("   [INDEX] KEY        VALUE");
for (int i = 0; i < coll.Count; i++)
	Console.WriteLine("   [{0}]     {1,-10} {2}", i, coll.GetKey(i), coll.Get(i));
