URL encoding

The URL does not need to be completely `URL-encoded'. You only need to use escape characters for tokens specifically used in an FTP URL, as shown in the following table. Any FTP URL that contains spaces must be enclosed in quotation marks; for example:

-URL "FTP://Home Machine/FTP Files"
