encoding underscores

hey all! I'm trying to write a php script to fetch some XML files and having some inconsistencies.

I've tried two different ways to open these files...

first curl:
curl_init($url);

then xml parsing with DOM:
$xmlDoc = new DOMDocument();
$xmlDoc->load($url);

in both cases, some of the files I want to get can't be found. And it's the ones with underscores that seem to not work sometimes.

Examples of files that work, every time... I can open these just fine:

Examples of files that totally do NOT work ever... I get a "not found" error in my script even though I can open them in a browser!

what's up with this... can you think of any way I should treat or encode underscores differently?

So you're saying that curl is not able to open those URls due to underscore? Could you confirm if that's your issue?
