Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2008-01-02 02:19:38 UTC
Dear friends;

At http://test.wikipedia.org/ it should be possible to test all / many aspects of [[mw:]]|MediaWiki.

So far I have never seen an UTF-8 inter project / inter wiki prefix.

a) Please add « Ω » the Greek capital letter [[Omega]] as an inter project / inter wiki prefix to the configuration for http://test.wikipedia.org/ .

   The target of this prefix should be:
   http://www.omegawiki.org/$1

b) Please add an interwiki prefix « ם » ,
   Unicode Character 'HEBREW LETTER FINAL MEM' (U+05DD)
   http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/05dd/index.htm
   as as an inter project / inter wiki prefix to the configuration for http://test.wikipedia.org/ .

   The target should be the same as the one from the interwiki prefix « m » wich derects to [[m:]] / [[meta:]]

c) Please add an interwiki prefix « ם » ,
   the Unicode Character 'HEBREW LETTER VAV' (U+05D5)
   http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/05d5/index.htm
   as as an inter project / inter wiki prefix to the configuration for http://test.wikipedia.org/ .

   The target should be the same as the one from the interwiki prefix « w » wich derects to [[w:]] .
   note: [[wikipedia:]] is the name space name for the project namespace at  http://test.wikipedia.org/ .


Thanks for all your efforts in advance!

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:Gangleri]]

Interwiki prefixes are latin/ASCII.

> Interwiki prefixes are latin/ASCII.

Dear Brion,

I would have preferred if you would have changed / resolved this request to resolution « LATER » .

There ar a lot of arguments using UTF-8 Interwiki prefixes :

a) users do not need to switch between different keybords
b) using RTL interwiki prefixes is more convenient to write source code in wiki syntax because because users / editors would not be irritated about the bidirectional rendering.

btw: Would numbers (latin/ASCII) as « 4711 » be valid as interwiki prefixes or is it a must that the interwiki prefixes start with a a charavter in the a..z range? [[mw:Interwiki table]] does not provide documentation about this.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:Gangleri]]
