When use a variable with string value, which contains spaces after the #, as the value of href attribute to the <a> tag, the transformer automatically replaces the spaces with %20 and causes the link not recognize the anchor in the targeting page. Is there a work around for that? Sample code as follow:

<xsl:variable name="url" select="$urlink/@url"/>
<a href="{$url}" target="ext_link" onclick="new_win()"><xsl:value-of select="$title"/></a>

href value desired: http://www.state.ma.us/dhcd/components/dns/HtOHA.htm#About Our Programs
what I got: http://www.state.ma.us/dhcd/components/dns/HtOHA.htm#About%20Our%20Programs

Thank you,
