the error described at
is quite common to Wikipedias using both 8-bit and UTF-8 special characters.
At Latin-1 type wikis a interlanguage link can contain either 8-bit or encoded
UTF-8 character(s). The common copy and paste, automatic UTF-8 character
encoding in the preview / while saving does not support this (because only UFT-8
charcters are encoded and the 8-bit characters not) and links will fail.
In order to have such interlanguage links with both 8-bit and encoded UTF-8
characters the 8-bit characters must be encoded as well. The only way to do this
(at the moment) is to adjust the links manualy.
See the details at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla:1691 .
I use Windows XP and Mozilla firefox but this should not matter.
