Description Christoph Lange 2005-08-02 20:10:40 UTC
Note: actually, I'm talking about MediaWiki 1.5 beta 4 (used by the German Wikipedia)    
It's impossible to submit query parameters containing spaces to other sites (Google, for example) using InterWiki  
links, since those spaces are converted to underscores when the page is saved, even when you URL-encode them as 
"%20". I consider this a bug, not a feature, since MediaWiki accepts URLs containing spaces, it converts them to 
underscores itself when it received the request.

bug 707 needs tidying up (probably splitting) but it does cover exactly this
problem. Glancing back, bug 707 comment 15 seems to summarise most of the issues.
