You write that "Spaces must not occur in URLs." Is there any basis for the
quoted statement? And on the supposition that they must not, how is it
they do occur in URLs in OpenOffice and in Microsoft Office? From what I
understand, file URLs were originally not URLs proper; they were not
specified in some of the first RFCs that specifed what a URL is. I do not
know the state of the matter today, but if the major providers of office
software keep the spaces, I do not think there can be any basis for the
strong normative (not descriptive and not scientifically testable)
"Spaces must not occur in URLs of life."
The usability concern, for me and, judging from some forum messages, for
other users, is that spaces are easier to read, easier to enter manually,
they are pasted into FreeMind from other applications, and are the de
standard in file URLs. That is why I think that spaces should (weak
non-descriptive requiring statement) be kept, instead of being replaced

what is the reason? Spaces must not occur in URLs. Even for local files,
the URLS contain %20 instead (verify with your browser, please). We have
fixed the issue with windows2k in opening this form of URL and now,
everything works as expected, AFAIK.

Betreff: [Freemind-developer] URLs of local files - spaces
I have created a new issue in the Issues tracker, requiring that
the URLs of local files are left unconverted to "%20".
