The "href" attribute of the "a" element must contain nothing but URI
references, thus Tidy is right to interpret the value as beeing a URI
references. URI references must not contain spaces, thus Tidy escapes
the spaces in your javascript:... URI reference. This is not a bug. If
you dislike what Tidy does to your URI, you can use the --fix-uri
configuration option to avoid any escaping of the URI, but then your
(X)HTML document will be invalid.
