I was a bit rush about that. when I use %20 in a name, Jigsaw handles it Ok
and finds the resource.
"indexed, but not available" message appeared because I used
PostableResource as a test resource and it has this problem anyway(see my
PostableResource .. mail).
I tryed to create a directory with empty space and it shows up with spaces
in both name and URL. If I just click on name, I get an error, but If I put
%20's instead of spaces it works. That means the problem is less generic
than I thought.

Most probably, this error would be limited to resource that export other
resources with special characters in them, Editors/Directories, some
dynamic resources probably. They might need to use urlEncode or some such
(is there one?). However, it has to be done and has to be part of the
oficial distribution.

Alex.
Ps. Some small addendum, huh? :-}
