Sad, really :o). Y'see, what you're doing is forcing your own

open up "force/downloads" in their text editor, but *want* to have the
file in question (say, a .pdf) open up somewhere else.

work in some browsers. The %20 (I forget the exact explanation, sorry)
is basically code for the space. All browsers understand
