Hello,

1) I use Tidy (vers 14 febuary 2006) to clean up my pages but I have 
problems with hyperlinks containig "special" characters like the french é
Tidy replaces this in <a href="# by  %C3%A9, but does not replace it in <a 
name="

2) If the anchor contains spaces, they are replaced by %20 in  <a href="# 
, but not in the text.

In both cases the links do not work. How can this be avoided, and undone 
in the existing pages ?

Kind regards

Guy De Saedeleer
