Description Ruud Koot 2006-04-27 04:38:36 UTC
MediaWiki does not handle article titles which contain or consist of an HTML
entity correctly. Take for example an article named " ". Instead of the
title being displayed as " " a real non-breaking space is displayed. A more
subtle bug involves viewing the deletion history of this article. If one clicks
on the "View or restore 2 deleted edits?" link at  you will be redirected to instead of . If you manually enter this
link the deleted versions are displayed but the deletion log is empty (this
artle has been deleted at least twice, however).> will show a deletion log but
not quite the right one.

It is quite tricky to find the deletion log:
1) Go to [[Special:Log/delete]] and type   and hit return
... No result will be shown.
2) Type   and hit return.
... You will see
show the rendering of selfrefering links.
