Using HTML::WikiConverter-0.68 via command-line (and the current web interface at, URL encoded entities are not preserved when converting href attributes. Depending on the Wiki dialect, this can result in broken links. The most common problem is likely to arise for URLs having spaces encoded as "%20" which produces broken links for popular dialects such as MediaWiki, WIkkaWiki, GoogleCode, et al. This does not appear to be true for similarly encoded src attributes. I've amended our local installation by removing the "uri_unescape" call from line 502 in the main module's __rel2abs() sub: 502c $node->attr( $attr => URI->new_abs( $node->attr($attr), $self->base_uri )->as_string ); however, I'm not sure if that call is serving some other purpose. Regards, Don Maszle

I have also run into this bug. It also causes issues with utf8-encoded paths (IE japanese text). The attached patch fixes this for me. (The result is the same as the OP has pasted in) Cheers, Brett On 13/05/11 11:20, wrote: Show quoted text
