Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-03-05 10:27:19 UTC
Dear friends,

the first interlanguage link in
will fail, the seccond will not.

are displayed properly in (my) browser (Mozilla Firefox)

It would be nice to fix this because it is just another "have to know".

The page is corrected. See:

'''Note:''' The example of this behaviour relates to a [[Latin-1]] wiki. It is
not tested at [[UTF-8]] or right to left wikis.

Best regards

Halló! The bug has been reported at [[:sourceforge:projects/pywikipediabot]].

None of the hexadecimal variants ( +x as in &+#+x+0+nnnn+; ) has been tested so far.

Regards Reinhardt [[User:Gangleri]]

P.S. I wonder if pictures from [[commons:]] are available here
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-03-05 18:59:22 UTC
[[en:User:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla:1636]] shows olso other behaviors where links
are not generated at all, see :eo:ŝanĝo

(regarding comment #2)
The correct link is [[sourceforge:projects/pywikipediabot]] (if InterWiki's work
here else ).

Comment 3 Christian Richardt [Richie] 2005-04-20 18:59:56 UTC
HTML entities are not correctly converted to characters.

> ro:Olteniţa links to [[:ro:Olteniţa]] with a "ţ" (lower case T with cedille)
> ro:Olteniţa links to [[:ro:Olteniía]] with an "í" (lower case I with accent aigu)

This "í" is actually #237 (decimal), which is #0355 (octal). I think, "0355" is incorrectly converted to an 
integer, leading zeros should be stripped.

By the way: Internet Explorer 6, Firefox 1.0 and Opera 8.0 display #355 and #0355 as the same character "ţ".
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-04-21 06:33:06 UTC
wfMungeToUtf8() was incorrectly passing decimals in a way that got initial-zeroes interpreted as octal.

Fixed in CVS HEAD and REL1_4 and put live. Fix will be in 1.4.3.
