URLEncode accent-i

I had high hopes but converting to ISO didn't work. That yields: Santer%EDa

The server wants UTF8 and I think (but am not sure) that I need to get:
  Santer%C3%ADa

I haven't found the right combination of uniEncode/Decode and urlEncode 
that doesn't make a mess of the string. Does anyone know how to do this 
without manually replacing every possible combination of high-ascii 
characters?
