URL encoding problem

We've sent out a bunch of emails with an auto login feature.
Some of the usernames have German ASCII characters like � in 'P�per'.

It seems firefox will auto-correct this to %E4 and IE seems to do random things!

Trying to decode this using a UTF-8 decoder simply doesn't work - it just returns 'Pper' from the original 'P%E4per'.

Oddly, the automatic encoding of Japanese text seems to work fine, but these characters are just causing a complete headache within a URL.

Is there anything I can do to translate this back into ASII or UTF-8?
