As I noted in a response to Nils earlier in this thread,
Firefox/Webkit/Opera don't actually require authors to percent-encode
brackets and spaces in data URIs. (not sure whether that's correct per
spec or not).
data:text/html,<i>here is some italic text<i>
works just fine in all three.
So that makes it quite easy to hand-author data URIs, in fact. (aside
from this "#" gotcha)
