    Technically, this is a bug in your HTML files, not in htdig.
    Spaces in filenames are supposed to be encoded as %20 in
    URLs. Embedded spaces in URLs within an href="..." string
    are a violation of RFC 2396.

    If fixing your HTML files is not an option, see
    ftp://ftp.ccsf.org/htdig-patches/3.2.0b5/fileSpace.0
    for a fix for this in htdig.
