Underscore in URL gets escaped to %5F and does not work.
I'm trying to use an underscore in a link in my answers at stackoverlow. However, the link does not work in the resulting HTML.
This is similar to the discussion here. But the answers doesn't work for me. Specifically, I use the provided editor to create the link which should work according this answer.
Is there a way to avoid the escaping?
The link works in Internet Explorer but not in Firefox. So it might be a Firefox bug. But strangely the link works with Firefox from the editors preview!?
%5F. That is good, as Firefox treats an escaped underscore differently than Chrome, which might mess up when the server is not configured correctly. Like try
http://pear.php.net/package/XML%5FSerializerin both browsers. In Firefox note the URL in the 404 message (and the encoded
GETin its request), while the URL loads just fine in Chrome.
