Description Muke Tever 2005-01-20 18:14:29 UTC
The normalization equates Ὀξύς (where ύ is U+03CD, 
upsilon with tonos) and Ὀξύς (where ύ is U+1F7B, 
upsilon with oxia); visiting http://la.wiktionary.
org/wiki/Ὀξύς (with oxia) redirects without notice 
to http://la.wiktionary.org/wiki/Ὀξύς (with tonos). 
That's rational behavior.

However:

* A wikilink to [[Ὀξύς]] (with oxia) is not 
recognized by the software as pointing to an extant 
page.  The link does "work" in the sense that it 
links to Ὀξύς (with tonos), but it will make it 
into an edit link, not a regular link.   (The 
example is the first link in the table under 
"declinatio").  

The {{sofixit}} solution is to edit the link so 
that it points to the tonos form; this works, 
though counterintuitive to people with polytonic 
keyboards, who may expect a page they thought they 
created with oxia [which mediawiki silently 
converted to tonos] to be linkable to with oxia.
Comment 1 Muke Tever 2005-01-20 18:42:45 UTC
Another part of this problem is that links to Ὀξύς with oxia 
do not show up in the whatlinkshere for Ὀξύς with tonos.   
And because Ὀξύς with oxia and Ὀξύς with tonos are merged in 
urls with the normalization, it's impossible to do a 
whatlinkshere on Ὀξύς with oxia -- you get silently 
redirected to the whatlinkshere on Ὀξύς with tonos.  I don't 
know if this is a separate bug or not.

For an example compare:
http://la.wiktionary.org/wiki/Usor:Mycēs/oxia
http://la.wiktionary.org/wiki/Usor:Mycēs/tonos
Comment 2 Muke Tever 2005-02-16 22:25:24 UTC
Okay, text now appears to be normalized on input; this is no longer an issue.

*note*
WIKT:LA does / can *not* use lower case titles. This means that in this testcase
the first small letter is replaced with the great one. That function is involved
here also.

If capitalisation would be switched off other links would be generated at
[[wiktinary:la:]].
