HTML validation error on Wikidata 'Edit links'
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The link in the article page to edit the Wikidata links is of the form:

<a href="//www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:ItemByTitle/enwiki/John Colter" title="Edit interlanguage links">Edit links</a>

For articles with a space in the name, the space is included in the href, which is invalid. This needs to be properly encoded.

Examples:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Colter

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fw%2Findex.php%3Ftitle%3D-%26curid%3D1056709%26uselang%3Den&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

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.
