Ewald Ertl's reply to Don Parris's question about "r" operator gave me the
idea of trying that out to solve my problem with file name scrambling when
trying to use webbrowser.open_new() to open a file on my computer in a
browser. It worked!
webbrowser.open_new("file://C:\__Library\folders\02394 Yale Style
does not work, but this
webbrowser.open_new(r"file://C:\__Library\folders\02394 Yale Style
Thank you Ewald, for triggering the solution in my mind!
Now, if anyone can explain why webbrowser.open_new() does the character
substitution thing it was doing (and thus becoming unable to locate the
file in question), I'm eager to hear it.
Meanwhile, I can go ahead with my program.
