completely correctly as interwiki. That is, a tlh:<title>
will link to the correct tlh-page, but in the Wikipedia

other languages. Instead, it's displayed in-text, asif it
were :tlh:<title>.
First encountere 18 september 2004 approximately 12 GMT.
Testing lasted until time of report. Tested on Fy: en Nl:
with standard skin, and on En: with monobook skin.
Repeatable, repeatable for other pages, reteatable for
user:-page. Example given in URL above.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

This is the intended behaviour according to Wikipedia policy.

en:<title> is included in the "other languages"-sections.
:en:<title> is included in-text.
tlh:<title> is included in-text.
:tlh:<title> is included in-text.

Since Wikipedia aims at being language-independent, Wikipedia policy
should specify the same intended behaviour in both cases. Actual
behaviour however is not the same.

Wikipedia policy does not specify that. It's part of the compromise on
including a Klingon language Wikipedia at all. If you want this to change, you
will have to change the policy.
