This a list of links in a html page:

<a href="../lyrics-1/kldrasa_pano-s-ena-vraho_48.html">...

<a href="../lyrics-1/plla_tsahpin_69.html">...

<a href="../lyrics-1/kldrasa_mia-stenohoria_53.html">...

<a href="../lyrics-1/12latra_souroupomata.html">...

<a href="../lyrics-1/anksrtta_i-ellada-(lengko).html">...

When I right-click in code view, any of the first four references there is an option "Open [the-target-of-the-link-here]". However, for the last one, the option is only "Open" and when I click it nothing happens; while in design mode, if I click the "Open linked page" option for the same link, the corresponding page opens.

Does the parentheses confuse Dreamweaver (CC 2015)? Is there any restriction on what file names are acceptable?

Best practice, don't use any special characters or spaces in file or folder names.  Dots, dashes and underscores are OK, however.

Whilst parentheses are allowed in links, design mode is not an actual browser, and they may cause problems.

Also you should not rely on design view for giving an accurate display of the page, it will not.

I didn't say that I use design mode either as a browser, or as an accurate display of the page. I've just mentioned it for someone who might ask "have you tried to open the linked page in design mode to see what happens?".

Thanks.
