Coding of characters

Is there a list of characters and their corresponding codes? I notice that the code given for À is different than the code given here. E.g., the proper WikiMedia code is %C3%80, and the Unicode code is %C0. In particular I would like to know the proper code for the underscore character. Thanks! 21:07, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Force underscores in page name

Is there a way to force page names so that underscores are not treated as spaces, and vise versa? I am trying to create and article with an underscore at the beginning of the page name. Thanks! 21:28, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Forgot to specify that the wiki is a private one (and therefore re-configurable), not Wikipedia. 03:24, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I see now that this was asked already. Still, it would be nice to be able to force the separation of spaces and underscores in private wikis. 20:45, 6 April 2008 (UTC)


It was brought to my attention that using certain words as page titles — such as Echo — causes my wiki to throw out a 406 error, stating that an acceptable representation of the page cannot be found. I've noticed however that page titles like that work on Wikipedia and the like, so I'm wondering if there's some sort of configuration setting or something that I should know about to remedy this problem. --Raenis 04:45, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Page name grammar

Is there an wp:en guidline on grammar in page names/titles? I notice that a lot of categories get renamed from "fooian foos" to "foos in foo" (or "Spanish cyclists" and "Cyclists from Spain") for example, and was wondering if a guideline along these lines exists for articles.

The second example in Help:Page name#Variables PAGENAME and PAGENAMEE should use NAMESPACEE

  • ... and {{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAMEE}} give ... should be
