    Ketarin not decoding data in HTML

    I had a feeling it was an edge case that browsers were working around. It had that smell to it :-) Thanks for the hint on the replace feature; I wasn't even aware of that.

    Ketarin not decoding data in HTML

    Hi - I'm not sure if this is a bug in Ketarin, .NET, a fault of the web dev of the site, or a bit of none/all of the above. On the download page of the encryption software VeraCrypt, the link to the download has an encoded "+" character in the HTML, showing up as "&#43;". Firefox decodes this automagically and the link works, but Ketarin requests the URL as-is. The offending line in the page is as follows: <a href="https://launchpad.net/veracrypt/trunk/1.21/&#43;download/VeraCrypt%20Setup%201.21.exe"> Requesting this via Ketarin gets a 404, the same with cURL. I assume the web server is seeing the "#" and assuming it's part of a document anchor. Or something else weird. Either way I'm not sure where the fault lies but I'm erring towards the site being "less incorrect" :-) For the moment I've just split the URL variable into two parts but figured I'd report this in case it is a bug in Ketarin.
