How do you add the link to your org document? If you cut-and-paste into
the document, there should be no double encoding. If OTOH you use C-C
C-l, that *always* url-encodes, so you end up encoding the % sign and
%20 becomes %2520 since there is no way for org to know whether
something is urlencoded already. There was a discussion about this not
too long ago that came to this conclusion IIRC[fn:1].

You can get around the problem by constructing such links manually -
paste the url-encoded URL as it comes from your browser directly into
your org file buffer:


and then put the link decorations around it by hand - after all, org is
just plain text:


Exporting that to HTML works fine I believe.
