Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-01-12 21:26:41 UTC

According to

the following links are equivalent:

This is why [[foo+bar]] should render also.

Another question is to *what* [[foo+bar]] should render. Probably to *foo_bar* .
Please see
Bug 707: Google search with [[Google:search term]]

I know this is another bug. However rendering [[Google:search term]] to
*search%2Bterm* is more advantageous as rendering to *search_term*.

[[Foo+bar]] should link to a page entitled "Foo+bar", according to what I can
see, + now being a valid title character.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-01-12 21:37:49 UTC
Hi Rob!

%2B is the encoding of "+"
It is used inside
as a substitute / equivalent of %20 == " " and %5F == "_"

I never stated that "+" is a valid title character.
