In my answer to How to use indexOf (int ch) in java I have a link to the String.indexOf(int, int) method in the Java API docs which isn't working correctly. The URL is correct. I suspect that the problem is that the URL has a space in it. How do I fix this?

@KDiTraglia I guess I should clarify. Three of the links work fine. There's a fourth link that doesn't work. At least on my end, it shows the description and URL in the answer. – Code-Guru Sep 9 '12 at 0:04

The reason was indeed the space in the URL. Replacing that with %20 made it work.
