Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2004-11-15 13:41:11 UTC
[[test:Special:UnicodeConverter]] is a great feature.

I am happy that some people know about this. At some point 
validators for people less skilled would be helpfull.

Such validators could be:
- Unicode (implemented standard)
- UTF-8
- valid pages names (two versions UTF-8 and Unicode)
- page code (Parser verification see bug 885)

Other possible candidates:
- loops between redirects (bug 850 ?)
- loops between categories bug 875 (graph validation)
- recursion validation of templates bug 95
- ...

I assume that modules for that code would be available anyway.

Regards Reinhardt

P.S. While testing I inserted 
at Special:UnicodeConverter. I know that it is not intended to do 
such things. But it is worth to make such a test at some point.

This seems to ask general questions about a lot of unrelated things.
Please split it up into individual, dinstinct ('actionable') issues.
