In [[es:wikipedia]] a vandal create false accounts similar to true user (for
example PAC0, not PACO, MI GENERAL. ZAPATA, Not Mi GENERAL ZAPATA, ...).
Last time he use the fact the font have a very similar I and l. In this font,
for example, it is easy to see the mistake. But there they are identical.
Can capital i be changed to this I?
WONTFIX, there are valid reasons to use lower case i and we're not going to
transform it to capital i.

Absolutely wonderful bug summary, that. "Maybe..." - simply superb. Couldn't
have asked for anything clearer, or more descriptive, eh?
Sorry, my English isn´t very good. Something more descriptive: go to wikipedia,
and write apital i. Then write l. They look like the same letter. And a vandal
has already use it to create false accounts.
