Summary0001921: Substitute space for %20 in download file names
DescriptionWhen downloading files with encoded characters in their names (such as those at http://www.stairwaytohell.com/heartcore ), the local file name proposed by Netsurf substitutes underscores for percent symbols in the original name. Presumably this is because '%' is not valid in a RISC OS file name. As a result I now have lots of files on my hard disc named things like 'heartcore_20-_20the_20game_20-_20128kbps_20-_2004' (which should be 'heartcore - the game - 128kbps - 04').

When proposing a local file name, please could NetSurf decode characters specified in hexadecimal, where these are printable? I assume that the subsequent translation of spaces (ASCII &20) into hard-spaces (character &A0) is a separate issue.

I'd like to show my support for this which is still an issue, usually with PDF files I download.
