Description Leah 2005-02-25 07:55:01 UTC
This character corresponds to the sequence %C5%81.  Mediawiki seems to decide
the %81 either isn't important (%C5 is Å) or is simply invalid (redirecting to
the main page).  Consequently, there is a page titled Å that redirects to Ł, but
is different from the real Å page.  This redirect page can be edited but may
also appear as protected at the whim of the server.  Oops.  Perhaps, rotated 90
degrees, Ł could be called the "Mediawiki shoots itself in the foot" character?

Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-02-25 08:03:18 UTC is encoded in ISO-8859-1, which does not have an L with stroke character.

When it is converted to UTF-8 later on, it will work fine.
