Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2004-11-18 16:36:39 UTC
If you compare this page ([[en:User:Gangleri/tests/Unicode_ISO_8859-
1/links]]) with [[meta:User:Gangleri/tests/Unicode_ISO_8859-1]] (
1 ) you will see a different behaviour.

Regards Reinhardt

It's expected that they would be different, since they are different 
character sets with different requirements.

If you think something is not correct, please describe the exact 
symptoms, and the *minimal, isolated* test cases for showing them. 
Linking to a couple pages with dozens of links and just saying "they're 
different" is not helpful.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2004-11-19 09:23:12 UTC
At additional 
tests are available:

Summary: Only some character are responsible, that no links are generated. Such characters 
are: [[Hebrew]] "נ" (נ), [[Runes|rune]] "ᚠ" (ᚠ) and probably 
some more depending on other charactersets.

At the mentioned page these two links (with one single Unicode character) behave different 
compared to other links with Unicode characters:
[[en:User:Gangleri/tests/Unicode_ISO_8859-1/נ]] with the "נ" character
*[[en:User:Gangleri/tests/Unicode_ISO_8859-1/Runes/ᚠ]] with the "ᚠ" character

Regards Reinhardt
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2004-11-19 09:32:28 UTC
They're invalid because they contain the byte %A0, which is not allowed in titles on a latin-1 wiki.

That the character references are converted as UTF-8 bytes in the first place is due to bug 65. Marking as duplicate.
