Re: problem with spaces in urls

Then it is not a legal URL. In order to be a legal URL the spaces should be
represented by '+' or '%20' (both of which are legal encodings for spaces). Putting
a real space in the URL is a good way to get it to not work properly, unless the
browser is smart enough to see it and do the encoding itself (which many are).

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
