Google Maps Integration code objective is ambiguous

The 5th challenge tasks asks the user to URL encode the address of "622 E Washington Street, Suite 240, Orlando, FL 32801" for the markers parameter.

Looking at the Google API documentation, they refer to URL-escaping the string.

The question is ambiguous because if you percent encode the reserved characters it fails the challenge as the string URL percent encoded looks like this: -


I think some reference to reserved characters should be added to this question so that people in future know what to look for. What do you think? Andrew Chalkley
