Mediawiki Section Symbol: Make [[Article#section]] wikitext appear as "Article § section" instead of "Article#section"
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I would like Wikilinks to article sections to appear differently. Specifically, I would like [[Article#section]] wikitext to appear as "Article § section" instead of displaying as "Article#section". While the general public is growing in familiarity with the URI convention of '#' indicating a section, the symbol "§" is designated for this in character maps and traditional usage.

I'm afraid that migration to such a new scheme might be pretty complex and unlikely to happen...
