There is one place where one needs to escape ':'. And that is if
':' appears in the first segment of a relative uri reference. Like

a link to http://example.org/test/another:name.html
appearing in http://example.org/test/index.html

<a href="another:name.html">another</a>

will nto work. Either esacpe ':' or use

<a href="./another:name.html">another</a>
