Description Christopher Beland 2004-12-26 09:21:58 UTC
If you go to the specified URL, you will find two articles, a good article named
"Rialto, California" and a bogus article named "Rialto,%20California".  The link
to the first one works fine.  The link to the second one brings you to the first
article.  In fact, typing in the URL shown for the second one (which is what I
would expect to work), brings you to the first article.  I'm not sure why
url-encoding is de-coded twice (from Rialto%2C%2520California to
Rialto,%20California to Rialto, California) instead of just once.  In the long
run, it may be a feature - it's nice if article names are canonicalized -  but
in the short run, it's keeping me from accessing the text of the second article.
 There could easily be some badly-named articles with legitimate text that need
to be rescued. -- Beland of

Second title is illegal and should not appear in the database. It was able to be created due to an old bug which is no 
longer present.

I've moved it to:
(It will likely be deleted soon as newbie cruft.)
