Summary
Link to footnote chokes on URLs with parentheses encoded

Description
I tracked down that PDF Latex? was choking on conversion of a wiki-link to the URL http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graph_%28mathematics%29

The %28 and %29 are encodings for left and right parentheses. Trying to replace these with ( and ) also failed.

I was able to side-step the problem by using a Tiny URL? encoding of the URL, but that’s short of a true solution.

Proposed solution
LATEX is interpreting the % as a comment — we have to encode the % as \% to fool it. The fix is under test.

Fixed in server release 0.9.4b.
