External links are not parsed for spaces

Hello,

Some URLs may contain spaces and these spaces are not parsed as %20 for them to be openable.

What happens in discourse:

[Link in Discourse](https://developer.android.com/reference/android/database/sqlite/SQLiteDatabase.html#query(java.lang.String, java.lang.String[], java.lang.String, java.lang.String[], java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String))

[Link in Stackoverflow](https://developer.android.com/reference/android/database/sqlite/SQLiteDatabase.html#query(java.lang.String,%20java.lang.String[],%20java.lang.String,%20java.lang.String[],%20java.lang.String,%20java.lang.String,%20java.lang.String))

You see how SO will convert those spaces into %20.

This is by design, spaces are not supported in URLs.
