Thanks fo reporting that, it is a known issue but I have not had the time to debug it. It might be a valid way of writing an URL, but sofar only Microsoft on their MSDN site does it. A workaround is using tinyurl or any other URL shortener.

With regards,

It also works to manually replace the brackets with %28 and %29 respectively.

Use the source, Luke!
