On the side, if of any help:
I generally use ID's for linking to headings.
The benefit is that headings can be re-named safley and links still work.
There is an org-module called 'org-id', which when enabled in conjunction with the variable
below allows you to automatically generate a unique id for the heading when you press C-c l and link to it with C-c C-l.
This exports nicley also. E.g here is a unique anchor link to one of those unique ID's:
(org-id-link-to-org-use-id (quote create-if-interactive-and-no-custom-id))

[O] Internal Links with Spaces
I'd like to re-raise the issue discussed here
. In short, storing and inserting an internal link to a headline containing spaces using org-store-link and org-insert-link causes export to fail because the space is "hexified" into %20.
It seems like the thread died because hexifying links to support external URL's conflicted with internal links containing spaces with no clear path forward.
Am I missing further discussion where this was resolved?
If not, is a fix still possible or is this a "won't fix" because of the clash with external links?
If it's "won't fix", is it possible for me to advise org-insert-link (or some other function) or configure some other individual hack to work around the problem? I never use org-insert-link for URL's, so I'd be glad to blindly stop hexifying even if it breaks that functionality.
