How can I add a link to
http://icu-project.org/apiref/icu4j/com/ibm/icu/text/MessageFormat.html#format(java.lang.Object, java.lang.StringBuffer, java.text.FieldPosition)
to a confluence page? The  syntax doesn't work, probably because of the special characters.
My first attempt was to paste the URL into Firefox but for some reason, the browser accepts it as it is (instead of replacing all the special characters) :-( Same for Chrome.
What other tools can I use on Linux to turn this into something that Confluence will handle correctly?
