I am encountering this issue as well, and am just wondering if there have been any new breakthroughs on resolving the issue? When linking to external pages such as Amazon, a URL frequently has character encoding that cannot be tampered with.
For example, http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie=UTF8%26field-keywords=clocks
If I include a link such as this in a Generic Content container, it decodes the escaped characters and saves something like http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&field-keywords=clocks
. When this link is clicked, it simply does not take a user to the correct page - the encoded version is required (please do not use my example here as a literal example, as clicking that second link probably works to a degree...the scenario I'm describing here is valid though).
Is there a way, other than overriding the functionality in the Inherit page, that a Generic Content can ignore decoding (i.e. prevent the replacement of something http%3A%2F%2F
