See comments on the web page.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the first link on the web page.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Non-break space in mailto link is transferred to email program visually as A
with circumflex. It maybe escapes to %C2%A0.

Expected Results:  
Non-break space escapes to %20 (?)


Tidy HTML 2 Feb 2004 validator also escapes non-break-space to %C2%A0 in a
mailto link.
The HTML parser is handling this correctly (as you can tell by looking at the
DOM).  I have no idea where this is breaking, but it's not the parser (and it
worksforme when I use Mozilla mail as a mail client....)

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
