Markdown rendering URLs with spaces

The following URL from Google Code does not seems to be parsable using the markdown Ajax widget used by Stack Overflow.

http://www.google.com/codesearch/p?hl=fr#Lhpgg-dZ4PI/timeline/trunk/src/webapp/api/scripts/sources.js&q=DefaultEventSource package:http://simile-widgets.googlecode.com&sa=N&cd=3&ct=rc&l=224

Is it my way to quote it that is bad? Or is it just to weird for an URL?

I think the space in your URL is what is breaking it (understandably). If you replace it with a %20, then it appears to work for all possible markdown approaches (at least, I just tested each one).

you must encode spaces in URLs. Generally speaking, spaces in URLs are A Bad Thing anyway. – Jeff Atwood Apr 15 '10 at 18:14

@Jeff Atwood: Not as annoying as those trailing )s in wikipedia links, which no URL parser known to man seems to get right - forcing me to manually edit them in my url bar :( – Phoshi Apr 15 '10 at 18:47
