 Hi, I'm having problems viewing Haddoc generated documentation in the
 Opera browser. Clicking an inter-document link simply does nothing.

 I'm almost sure that the problem is caused by having colons (':' - %3A)
 characters in URL fragments (and perhaps by other control characters, but
 I haven't noticed any except ':').

 While AFAIK this conforms to
 [http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-3.5 URI standards] and so the
 bug is actually in Opera, not in Haddock, it looks like it will take a
 long time before it will be fixed in Opera (I've reported the bug months
 ago). Therefore, replacing the ':' character in URL fragments with
 something Opera friendly (perhaps '_') would help Opera users before the
 bug in Opera will be fixed (if ever).

 Thanks, Petr
