In the Link window, when I type say


I see

<a href="http://boy&amp;girl.html">

in the Source which is the behavior I might expect but when I type

boy girl

I see

<a href="http://boy girl.html">the Source. I would have expected something like <a href="http://boy%20girl.html">


<a href="http://boy+girl.html">

I notice in the preview all is well On the other hand, when I use the editor to generate code I get the behavior I see in the source.

Ampersand character is a special case which must always be encoded. You may disable this encoding with below configuration option but you should not do it as &amp; does not break URL.

As for the blanks - yes URL should be encoded and yes browser do that in background if it isn't done but such encoding should not be done on client side but on server-side. Please see

DUP of #8806
