Replace backslash with \. I don't want to cause your pages not to load.

http:backslashbackslashwww.ethereal.com 

Also, could the damn exception print out what file it was working on?
I had a 1000 files and took some time to narrow this down.

''(exception description removed)''

;:''I can't reproduce this on www.jspwiki.org nor on a 2.1.9x server, both running with jdk 1.4.2 on linux. Could someone else do check on windows platforms?''

To verify: \\

http:\\www.ethereal.com \\
[http:\\www.ethereal.com]

Of course, you shouldn't be using backslashes in URL's anyway.

--[ebu]

True, but that's not the point.

Workaround exists now in 2.2.7: escape the double-backslash sequence with ~.
