Trouble posting a URL

Posted a URL for Gageshop.com just now.   For some reason, when I tested it in the post, it tried to find this URL:

Where all the extra characters %c2%a0/ come from is beyond me!

Hmm, that was around the time I changed the board from UTF8 to ISO-8859-1 to fix the problem with the black question marks on old posts. Those letters are what a UTF-8 code looks like in ISO-8859-1, so your browser just may not have realized the change had occured yet, and tried to post the URL using UTF-8.

To put it less technically, I changed a setting on the forum around that time to fix something, and it looks like your browser had not yet realized the change had happened and tried to post something the previous way.  Your browser should be caught up by now, so let me know if it happens again.
