      Description

      A heading in XWiki syntax

      = My heading Überschrift =
      

      will be displayed in the rendered page source code as

      <h1 id="HMyheadingDCberschrift"></h2>
      

      so for example the special character 'Ü' will be rendered in Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) '%DC' or "DC".

      As result I have to look up in the source code or use a decode tool to find out the correct link.

      [[label>>Space.Page#HMyheadingDCberschrift]]
      

      This means for me creating a link to a heading with special characters is pretty much impossible for an end-user.

      An improvement proposal would be not to decode special characters or alternatively rendere e.g. 'Ü' as 'Ue' or 'ß' as 'ss'.

      At least there should be a hint on
      http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/XWikiSyntax
      how to make an link to a heading with special characters if nothing will be changed in this place.
