i specify my website's internal files like this for my website: www.mscaspian.com ` but when i validate it with w3c it says there is an error in the last part, '>' . i don't understand why this is wrong. is there anything i'm missing? it says:

Bad value ../Nexus components/css/component.css for attribute href on element link: Illegal character in path segment: not a URL code point.Syntax of IRI reference: Any URL. For example: /hello, #canvas, or http://example.org/. Characters should be represented in NFC and spaces should be escaped as %20.

i read the NFC link they provided but Really couldn't figure out what's wrong with it! Using HTML5 and CSS3
