Anchor with accentuated characters don't work

This is a fact a very old issue, already present in 0.10. If you want to refer to a specific anchor in a wiki page, corresponding to a header level, that contains accentuated characters, the URL generated doesn't work. This happens whatever mean you used to create the reference to the anchor : an explicit TracLink, PageOutLine, TOC plugin…

Here is an example of such a URL: https://trac.lal.in2p3.fr/TracLAL/wiki/Admin/Install#Problèmesconnus (should be word-public readable). This should refer to an anchor automatically created by Trac for the following header:

=== Problèmes connus ===

If replacing the è by e, everything works as expected.

Your example worked for me in Chrome, IE 7 and Firefox 3.0.3, but not in Opera 9.63 (all versions tested on Windows). Which browser did you use?

Not sure if it's a browser bug or if Chrome, IE7 and FF3 worked "by chance". In the latter case we might do something.

The XML specification requires an ID attribute to be a Name. I suppose that accented characters fall into the "Name" definition, so it should work.

I use Opera (9.63). I was sure I tested in IE7 too but it was probably just a dream ! I tested again and it works. I'll fill a bug against Opera. Thanks. You can probably close this ticket.
