Greatly, it just works. I've tested domain object links by "Address
Book" example.
(Please see the attached file).

It is quite understandable because AIDASite class >>convertToWeb:on:
is called for generating href stirng (Smalltalk m17n string is
converted to UTF-8 encoded string). Since the returned html includes
content type header, (="text/html; charset=UTF-8"), web browser can
interpret the the string as UTF-8. When the link is clicked, the
browser encode the href string to URI encoded one. (And AIDA decode it
for further processing...)
