Nope, I don't even think we even have spaces, only underscores in the 
anchor names. Anyway, the one below fails too, and it doesn't have spaces.

This shows that it's IE's fault:

No styles, no nothing. Only anchors.

On the first run, with the history cleared, the anchors actually show up in 
blue. However, when I reload the page (and thus it finds that page in its 
history) they turn visited. So it's IE's fault.

But really, let's stop worrying about that, it's so small that it doesn't 
matter. IE users will be accustomed to this as the default, so there's no 
reason to circumvent it.
