Description Arno Lagrange 2006-09-26 06:34:45 UTC
Ligante per [[Puĝeta Fjordo‎]] oni atingas paĝon Pu%C4%9Deta_Fjordo%E2%80%8E kaj
ne "Puĝeta Fjordo". Redirektilo el tiu paĝo eĉ ne funkcias.
Comment 1 Arno Lagrange 2006-09-26 06:37:12 UTC
Temas pri [[:eo:Puĝeta Fjordo‎]]
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-09-26 14:40:20 UTC
This is the problem with the Unicode LTR/RTL override chars getting cut-
n-pasted.

Proper fix would have two parts:
1) Get around to forbidding these in page titles so the links are 
obviously broken. :)
2) Find out how to emit the override stuff *without* characters getting 
into cut-n-paste.

1) is bug 1414 and/or bug 3696.

For 2) it would be good to test to see which browsers actually do this 
so we can test alternatives.

Yeah, all forms should probably kill these, maybe on the server-side two. That way I they would get stripped out of edits/edit summaries. They should also be illegal titles.
