Links containing parens, in Markdown
I'm writing Your First Product (the book, not the website) in markdown. (Okay - the site is mostly written in markdown too, but I digress)... there was a url that ends with a closing parenthesis.
The markdown parser in gitbook did not understand this (although the one in pandoc did). To make it work everywhere I had to encode the parens as %20 and %29 respectively.
...and displayed as:
...worked correctly and displayed correctly.
Lesson: consider encoding ( and ) as %28 and %29 in urls.
