Aliases do not allow spaces

Taken from this thread it seems aliases are expected to work with spaces but they do not if you have a latex expression.

Steps to reproduce

Type below: --> On 0.9.17 type
[$g(\tilde{S}T, \mu_0 \mid \tilde{y}{T})$](joint conditional disribution)

Expected result

[$g(\tilde{S}T, \mu_0 \mid \tilde{y}{T})$] should be a clickable rendered link

This does work if you have
$g(\tilde{S}T, \mu_0 \mid \tilde{y}{T})$
$g(\tilde{S}T, \mu_0 \mid \tilde{y}{T})$

Actual result

In the rendered part you see the alias as text next to the link, i.e. you see
(joint conditional disribution)
as text.

Additional information

I am not aware of the exact workings of aliases but other board members suggested this is not an expected behaviour. Please see the referenced thread for a short discussion.

I am not sure what this has to do with alieases. Anyway, for markdown links the link format has to be urlencoded (with %20 instead of whitespaces)
