retrospective error

This reminds me of IETF arguments we got several years ago.

a) If we impose to the author that a URL is well formed and correctly
encoded. This means that any URL entered in the address box (an authoring
tool) should be correctly encoded. Is this realistic?
b) What is the difference between the two authoring tools a) the address
box, b) a HTML editor. You can say that both should correct the encoding by
replacing " " by "%20". Then, it seems that the biztalk author has a bad
authoring tool.

It remains that a good browser should try to recover as much as possible
from the errors created by authors (and if possible correct). The best thing
is to help us by reporting the problem to Mozilla.org so that this
deficiency is corrected.
