The white space after the "(" and before the ")" is fine. It is the
space between "green" and "pelican" that is a problem (under the rules
for URIs, not for CSS).

You could compare:

* http://dorward.me.uk/tmp/url-space-css/without.html
* http://dorward.me.uk/tmp/url-space-css/with.html

The former has the space correctly encoded as %20, the latter
doesn't. Both the validator and Firefox choke on the one with the
literal space.
