Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-20 02:13:43 UTC

{{lc:ASDFGHGHHJÄÖÜß}} renders as 'asdfghghhjÄÖÜß' and
{{uc:dfhkjjjäöüß}} as 'DFHKJJJäöüß' .

I assume that 'lc' is lowercase conversion and 'uc' is uppercase conversion.

Will provide more testcases for Cyrillic, Greek etc. characters because of
Bug 5025: [[lowercase namespace:lowecase pagename]] generate red links (at
Russian Wikipedia)

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

P.S. Please add 'Blocks' Bug 3985: character conversion (tracking)
If character manipulation issues should be tracked there as well.
Comment 1 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-20 03:05:57 UTC

Is a page testing special German, Esperanto, Romanian, Slovenian characters as
well as Greek and Russian characters.

There are six additional mirrors: [[:de:User:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/05047]] etc.

Ævar: The result does not depend on the local wiki configuration.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-20 03:39:44 UTC

Please compare
[[tr:user:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/05047#Turkish_i]] and
[[sl:user:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/05047#Turkish_i]] .

One would expect that
Bug 2761: Capitalization of "i" is not "I" in Turkish
would "influence" {{lc:}} and {{uc:}}.
Comment 3 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-21 15:57:49 UTC
included {{lcfirst:}} and {{ucfirst:}} in order to ilustrate that these two
predefined templates / magic word templates should be consistent with {{lc:}},

updated all test links:


changed url because at [[tr:user:Gangleri/tests/bugzilla/05047#Turkish_i]]
{{lcfirst:I}} is "i" and not "ı" as it should be according to the *counterpart* of
Bug 2761: Capitalization of "i" is not "I" in Turkish
would "influence" {{lc:}} and {{uc:}}.

Please reopen anoter bug if this is not covered by this bug or expande the bug
