I may be wrong here, but I think that a backtick is not a reserved
character and is allowed in a URL. Whether it is good practice to
include it is another story.

An equal, dollar or plus sign have special meaning in a URL, but are all
considered word characters with \w. Meaning: \w is not a good match for
finding URI characters. fn:escape-html-uri is probably a good thing to
add to your URL creation.
