Post-alphabetical article names and sort keys do not receive a letter/symbol heading in category list
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: muke

Description:
If an article is placed in a category and sorts
under 'z' or '{' or 'a' or '~' etc. it will appear
under that character's heading in the category list
... but if the sort is under 'Ż' or 'ê' or 'う' etc.
it will not appear under a character heading at all.

In a mixed-alphabet category it will be seen that
all characters after Z appear lumped together under
a blank heading.

This bug does not seem to affect subcategories,
whose behavior appears to be the same as before.

I meant the listing of subcategories on a category page, not
the subcategory itself... but it is strange that en.wikt's
category:Hebrew language doesn't have the character heading for
אתה while category:Hebrew letters does.

This regression was caused by the fix for bug 2802. I've backed out that fix pending corrections.

Use ?action=purge if necessary to ensure you're looking at a currently generated version of the page.
