Wordpress modifies URL data in href's
|Reported by:||hexley||Owned by:|
Data inside an href is changed, and I do not think under any case should a user entered url be changed unless outside an href. Currently the & (ampersand) gets url encoded, as seen here:
I think this is also wrong:
<a href="http://example.com/wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=119" title="Edit post">Edit This</a>
As you can see, URL encode on the ampersand again. While a browser recovers from this, the W3C expressly states you should only do this when you want to show an & on the page, not in a url that will end up in a browser.
It is now making a lot of sense why some urls emailed to others are failing on OS X mail.app
