Not sure if this is the answer (can't test it here), but you likely
need to escape the spaces, which for URLs is a "+" or %20 (depends
on your preference, I think). It's available automatically in
print CGI::escape("Accession or GI"), "\n";
Or in python's urllib <wink>
>>> import urllib
>>> urllib.quote("Accession or GI")
You might also be able to get away putting the whole URL in quotes,
if you haven't already, since your browser might not be seeing the
whole URL. Browsers usually will url encode nonstandard characters
if they see them in hrefs.
