%23 is the URL encoding of #.  All query parameters should be URL- 
encoded.  Technorati's former microformats service accepted unencoded  
URLs, but that was (in my opinion, anyway) a mistake, and shouldn't be  
expected elsewhere.

That URL has two parameters:

uri : http://example.com/#meeting1 (as it will be unencoded)
subscribe : Subscribe

It looks like you want subscribe as part of the uri parameter, so you  
need to encode it.
