AngularJS Question

What is the workflow of angular routing?

I'm working with angula rjs routin , everything works fine, but the routing is giving me a weird problem. When i click a link on my index.html page so the url look like the following

http://localhost:0000/Index.html#%2Fhome

Where as it should look like:

http://localhost:0000/Index.html#/home

When I make a change to my routing function from "/home" to only "/" my application works well, I don't understand where I'm going wrong following is my routing file:

var app = angular
.module("Demo", ["ngRoute"])
.config(function ($routeProvider, $locationProvider) {
$locationProvider.html5Mode(true);
$routeProvider
.when("/home", {
templateUrl: "Templates/home.html",
controller: "homeController"
})
.when("/courses", {
templateUrl: "Templates/courses.html",
controller: "coursesController"
})
.when("/students", {
templateUrl: "Templates/students.html",
controller: "studentsController"
})
})
.controller("homeController", function ($scope) {
$scope.message = "Home Page";
})
.controller("coursesController", function ($scope) {
$scope.courses = ["C#", "VB.NET", "ASP.NET", "SQL Server"];
})
.controller("studentsController", function ($scope, $http) {
$http.get("StudentService.asmx/GetAllStudents")
.then(function (response) {
$scope.students = response.data;
})
})


And following is my index.html:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html ng-app="Demo">
<head>
<title></title>
<script src="scripts/angular.min.js"></script>
<script src="scripts/angular-route.min.js"></script>
<link href="Styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />
<script src="scripts/Script.js"></script>
<base href="/"/>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
</head>
<body>
<table style="font-family: Arial">
<tr>
<td colspan="2" class="header">
<h1>
WebSite Header
</h1>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="leftMenu">
<a href="#/home">Home</a>
<a href="#/courses">Courses</a>
<a href="#/students">Students</a>
</td>
<td class="mainContent">
<ng-view></ng-view>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan="2" class="footer">
<b>Website Footer</b>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

    <script src="scripts/angular.min.js"></script>

    <script>document.write('<base href="' + document.location + '" />');</script>
    <link href="Styles.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src="scripts/Script.js"></script>
    <base href="/"/>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
</head>
<body>
    <table style="font-family: Arial">
        <tr>
            <td colspan="2" class="header">
                <h1>
                    WebSite Header
                </h1>
            </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td class="leftMenu">

                <a href="/students">Students</a>
            </td>
            <td class="mainContent">
                <ng-view></ng-view>
            </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
