Make Moodle's Custom Menu Item URLs to open in a new window

Be default, when you click the menu item you add in Moodle, you will be redirected to that link. If you want the menu open in a new window, you can do the following (example):

In Site administration -> Appearance -> Themes -> Theme settings (or http://your.moodle.url/admin/settings.php?section=themesettings), in the "Custom menu item" box:

Moodle new window|" target="_blank"

But it fails if the URL has special characters like:

Moodle new window|" target="_blank"
