I'm running the latest magento1.9.x
I am attempting to use a webservice call to create a downloadable link to a url similar to http://dev-nffiles.somesite.org/folder/Temp/9781554132_NurseMgr%27sBookForSaleStuff.mobi
Anytime I pass a url with percent encoding, I get a response "url_not_valid".
Assume I have xdebug and phpstorm, and I have a pretty good understanding of the zend framework, but i'm not going to step through magento core code for an hour. I feel like magento should support unicode percent encoding.
Can anyone recommend how I can get this to work? Its honestly out of the question to get the department creating the links to not do things like use apostrophes or spaces in the filenames.
