Thanks, I had forgotten that HTML 4.0 already did that; in which case IE5 is correctly carrying out error recovery, in accordance with the HTML 4.0 spec, on an illegal URL. As Appendix B2 makes clear, the actual URL is still illegal; and the document is still wrong; and could be trivially fixed by url encoding the invalid bytes, having first converted the characters to bytes in UTF-8. > Nevertheless, it is an embarrassment that such a site exports > illegal HTML.
