Description Milan Tešović 2006-03-11 19:50:27 UTC
gangleri told me to report a bug that he found. Its explained at

i will quote gangleri:
" [ Ä] should just generate a link "Ä" "
Comment 1 Milan Tešović 2006-03-11 19:52:09 UTC
This is on serbian wikipedia
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-03-11 21:18:40 UTC
Thanks Milan!

*additional note*
At [[sr:user:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/HTML_Entity_Names#Auml]]
[ Ä] generates the link "&Аумл" and not "Ä"

At [[sr:user:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/HTML_Entity_Names#x6d]]
[ m] generates the link "&#x6д" and not "m".
Please note that "x6д" is Cyrillic "x6%D0%B4".

LanguageConverter translates HTML entities but *first* HTML entities should be
converted into UTF-8 characters and later LanguageConverter should makes his job.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
Comment 3 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-03-11 21:33:28 UTC
[[sr:user:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/HTML_Entity_Names#nbsp]] is the only HTML
entity which "works".

Not shure if this bug blocks
Bug 3985: character conversion (tracking)
Bug 3969: unicode compatibitity (tracking)
There is no tracking bug for "general UTF-8 character coding compatibility".

Seems to be fixed.
