Description Alexander Sigachov 2006-09-14 21:43:43 UTC
Link for article "Рождество Пресвятой Богородицы" is:

==Bluebook style==
Рождество Пресвятой Богородицы,
(last visited сентября 14, 2006). 

I think this link is better for paper:

==Bluebook style==
Рождество Пресвятой Богородицы,Рождество_Пресвятой_Богородицы&oldid=1017938
(last visited сентября 14, 2006).
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-09-14 21:55:09 UTC
The latter is not a valid URL, and might not be supported by some user agents. 
Furthermore, it's impossible for someone without either a Cyrillic keyboard or
technical know-how to type it.  Granted, though: the latter is quite, quite painful.
Comment 2 Alexander Sigachov 2006-09-15 07:49:02 UTC
It is not URL, it is IRI. Most browsers support it (because a browser must works
with local filesystems as well). 

I think, it is impossible to type such long-long hex-coded link. And nobody will
insert the link in proper paper.
Comment 3 Alexander Sigachov 2006-09-15 07:50:54 UTC
Another way is to use something like tinyurl.
Comment 4 Niklas Laxström 2008-10-06 08:00:47 UTC
It seems that someone has edited the template to not include page title at all.
Comment 5 Raimond Spekking 2012-04-05 10:06:52 UTC
This bug can be fixed easily now:,3897 introduced wfExpandIRI(), used to solve bug 32748 (Printer friendly version of article must encode URL in unicode).
