Description PDD 2006-11-16 12:18:35 UTC
Lemmas that include Unicode character U+200E (LTR Mark) still generate at least
2 problems:

(1) Such lemmas can not be moved to their correct equivalent. Test case: create and then
try to move it to
MediaWiki will incorrectly report same lemma and not move.

(2) (and this might be connected to (1)) Such lemmas have an incorrect
wgPagename and wgTitle listed in the HTML source (i.e. the lemma variant without
the trailing LTR Mark).

Define "lemmas" in this context please.
Comment 2 PDD 2006-11-16 13:41:05 UTC
Oops, sorry. lemmas meaning pagenames, though I have tested the "move" bug only
with article pages. For some reason, pages with incorrect trailing LTR marks are
quite frequently created by users on de.wikipedia. Today's examples (from the
delete log):

Would be better if one could move them to the right name, preserving the edit
