mailnotify.tmpl is used to template email sent as multipart/alternative, and contains both

text/plain and text/html parts. Which is very good, but there is a tiny bug in the way

some urls are generated or rendered in the text/plain part.

In the text/plain part, a url for each topic uses:


whereas in the text/html part, it uses:


Unfortunately, %<nop>URL% renders a subweb with a hex-encoded separator %<nop>2F,

instead of a literal slash, and this breaks the url in firefox. Using the second form,

with %<nop>WEB% explicitly, works correctly.

The %URL was a misguided attempt to escape I18N topic names in the plain text output. I have changed it to use TWiki's ENCODE method, which will encode web/topic as web/topic
