Description Bj 2004-05-22 21:57:03 UTC
favelets.html contains several href attributes which contain
characters like "(" or ")" which must be escaped using %hh.
Comment 1 Terje Bless 2004-09-01 11:23:15 UTC
If this hasn't been fixed, it needs to be before 0.7.0 is released; so I'm
setting a blocker for Bug #856. If this is still present in 0.6.7, we should
fix it and consider it for a "0.6.8" release off the 0.6 branch.
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2004-09-06 18:10:40 UTC
Why do "(" and ")" have to be URI escaped?  In fact, RFC 2396 section 2.3
recommends _against_ it as they are allowed in this "context" otherwise AFAICT.
Comment 4 Bj 2004-09-06 18:28:30 UTC
They incorrectly contain "Validate Page" with an unescaped space which is 
illegal as defined in section 2.4.3 of RFC 2396; I've probably copied and 
pasted a bug report from somewhere without checking it any further...
Comment 5 Bj 2004-09-06 20:18:17 UTC
Fixed in CVS HEAD.
