not the only one (Netscape 4.76 doesn't appear to escape the spaces).
I also tried w3m, which does escape them.  As David said, this is a
matter of error recovery.  The remote site is free to discard the
unescaped spaces, which may not be what you intended.  To make it
unambiguous, we should escape them also.
