Slovak(Slovakia) language is actually Slovenian(Slovenia)
Chinese (unicode?) article title created, breaks interface The Anome, Thursday, April 4, 2002
Some one has managed to create f (link removed)
with all sorts of nasty consequences (try to edit it, for example).
This may be the same issue as above. Go to Poincaré conjecture, then click on "edit this link". On IE 6, I get a page "PoincarÃ© conjecture". In order to actually edit the article, or access its history, you'll have to manually enter something like

The charset should be changed to something appropriate (Shift_JIS or UTF8), or removed and replaced by the equivalent META tag.
On a similar note, visitors to http://www.wikipedia.com should be automatically redirected to the Wikipedia written in the language of their choice, as expressed in their browser language preferences. -- poslfit

Why is it that on IE 5, while this web site can display every single IPA letters and diacritics correctly, none of the Wikipedias can display any, except the standard 26 English letters? Something looks wrong. We should better WP. --Menchi 07:13 May 7, 2003 (UTC)
Suggestion: keep using SAMPA in markup, but provide an option to have this "translated" into IPA characters if the user chooses. -- Tarquin 08:23 May 7, 2003 (UTC)
