It doesn't seem to be possible to use whitespace or special characters in a pseudo anchor (#10284).

For example, I've wanted to have an anchor to class Environment(Component) in trunk/trac/env.py.

Personally, as far as trac is passing search terms via uri, the first method - uri encoding - is the most widely compatible way. So, here's the clue for that.

  • trac/htdocs/js/search.js

    index: trac/htdocs/js/search.js
    6666        var direction = h[1];
    6767        var case_insensitive = h.match(/\/i$/);
    6868        if (direction == '/' || direction == '?') {
    69           var hterm = h.substr(2);
     69          var hterm = decodeURIComponent(h.substr(2));
    7070          if (case_insensitive)
    7171            hterm = hterm.substr(0, hterm.length - 2).toLowerCase();
    7272          $('.searchword0').each(function() {

At least, there is no cross-browser solution in past years. We should verify the proposed changes work on supported browsers.

FYI: javascript - Encoding of window.location.hash - Stack Overflow
