Unable to create page with "ş" in the title on English Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: gangleri

There is only an entry en:Timisoara where Timişoara is mentioned. (See
the differences between the national character "ş" and the "s".
I tried to generate en:Timişoara but it was about creating somthing
like en:Timi.

Q: How Timişoara can be generated at en.wikipedia? They are defined
already at de:Timişoara, eo:Timişoara, ro:Timişoara, sv:Timişoara.

en: is still using iso8859-1 codepage, which doesn't contain the letter "ş".
Thus, this page can not be created currently.

marking as closed
[[en:]] is an UTF-8 wiki for a while. [[en:Timişoara]] is a valid title.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
