From bug 4840 comment #12 and #13:

NoVNC doesn't seem to work when logging in to a system with ISO8859-1
usernames. ASCII usernames work fine, I haven't tested other username

Here's what Firefox 28 has to say about this:

recv_message, caught exception:

Here's what Chrome 34.0.1847.116 says:

recv_message, caught exception: URIError: URI malformed

The usernames must match the server locale. We have decided to document this and improve the error message.
