IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE in URL anchor is replaced by SPACE
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Author: hnezumi

When any IDEOGRAPHIC SPACEs (U+3000) are included in anchor of wikiLinks,
they are replaced with SPACEs (and then LOW LINEs) in URL anchors.
But in section anchors of article bodies, they are not replaced.
As a result, wikiLinks with anchor including IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE(s) are "broken".

IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE in anchor should be either always normalized or always not.

For example, a wikitext [[Main Page#X X]] will generate a link to
[[Main Page#X_X]], however,


will generate a anchor of #X X, where the space between two "X" is
