I ran into a page which had a meta refresh tag looking something like as follows: <meta content="0; url=''" http-equiv="refresh"> Mechanize successfully parsed out the URL, however it did not strip the single quotes from it. So when I went to follow the link, I ended up at:'' Firefox handles this correctly. It would be nice if Mechanize stripped the quotes out too. The version of Mechanize that I am reporting against is 1.18.
