Incorrect Links on /training/rhce/courses

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0; Linux)
Description of problem:
When I click on certain links ending with a "/" in the Red Hat Training site
with the Konqueror web browser, the URL bar adds an unnecessary %20 character
to the end. Back button not available to return to the prior page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go here in Konqueror http://www.redhat.com/training/rhce/courses/
2. Click on "Student Guide" or "Certification Central" in the bottom left bar.
These URL's end with a / character.
3. Error 404 page because of the extraneous %20 character at the end of the
4. Click "Back". It does not return to the prior page. Instead it returns to
the page viewed before that.
Adds extraneous %20 to URL resulting in Error 404. Back button lost knowledge
of the last prior page, instead going to the one prior to the prior page.
It should navigate properly in the first place. Back shouldn't lose knowledge
of the prior page.
Konqueror does the right thing. The link clearly points to
"/training/student_guide/ " <- note the space (== %20) before the quotation mark.
This happens to work in some other browsers because they are buggy; what konqueror does is
the correct behavior. A browser must not ignore anything in the quotation marks.
Reassigning to website so they can fix it.
> Back shouldn't lose knowledge of the prior page.
What about this aspect of my report? I believe this is clearly a Konqueror bug.
Should I open another bug report or will this be fine?
in Konqueror. I detailed everything at this URL below with a few test cases
showing inconsistent behavior of hyperlinks and Konqueror losing knowledge of
the prior visited page when clicking Back.
