When installing Wiki 1.3.1, Links with Umlauts dont work
properly in my installation. While the pages show the
Links correctly, the URL seems to break when referring
to a page containing escaped characters.

So will the page link displaying as "AktuelleÄnderungen"
lead to a URL "...mywiki/Aktuelle%c3%84nderungen"
which itself points to the page "Aktuelle?derungen".

I tested this with these environments:

Browser
--------
IE 6.0SP1
Mozilla/Firefox 1.?

Web Server
-----------
IIS 6.0
Apache 5.0.22

OS
--
Win2k Server English
Win2003 Server German

Python
------
Python23
Python24

all with the same results.
charset is unchanged everywhere in the config files (iso)

Other observation:
action=test shows 2 failed assertions
- escape html markup in getText formatted call with link
(expected "&lt;escape;&gt;" but got "<p>&lt;a
class="nonexistent" href="...mywiki/%3cescape%
3e"&gt;&amp;lt;escape&amp;gt;&lt;/a&gt; </p>")

- escape html markup in getText formatted call
(expected "&lt;escape;&gt;" but
got "<p>&amp;lt;escape&amp;gt; </p>")

Any idea? Looks like a messed-up escape mechanism
somewhere...
