very simply - dilema between practical usability and standards. I remember Holger stating that using @ char for username is not valid. I would prefer if RT would act in a more practical way and such char was allowed in a parser, to prevent problems as yours ... add following lines into your user.r file and you are done: net-utils/url-parser/user-char: union net-utils/url-parser/user-char make bitset! #"@" ; ... and if you want to allow # char to be used in path part net-utils/url-parser/path-char: union net-utils/url-parser/path-char make bitset! #"#" hopet-this-helps, cheers, -pekr-
