That is correct for url encoding. You cannot have spaces in a query string. They have been replaced with %20 which is recognized as a space by the server when it receives the request.

The text or 1 = 1 is URL-encoded into or%201%20=%201.  When the information is found inside the $_GET array, it will have been URL-decoded, back into or 1 = 1.  So if you wanted to add or 1 = 1 to test SQL injection, just add or%201%20=%201 to the end of the URL.

PHP functions about URL-encoding:
http://php.net/manual/en/function.urlencode.php
http://php.net/manual/en/function.urldecode.php

Thanks for the points.  Just as an aside, sometimes the blank can be URL-encoded into the plus sign, too.  So or 1 = 1 could look like or+1+=+1 and it would likely work correctly, too.
