I'm getting a strong impression (by web searches on this topic) that the forum should be encoding the special characters in thread titles and it's not. Please let's keep this thread on-topic about whether the "correct" behavior (as per URL specs) and making sure the forum is behaving accordingly. I'm hoping everyone will be on good behavior regarding the "browser wars". Thanks. Two current examples that don't load for me (in Windows 8.1 Preview): Help Green All Of Washington State’s Highways In 90 Days! Club Tesla Québec Gatherings I've underlined what appear to be the problematic characters. A random helper page from the web: The URLEncode and URLDecode Page Input: Help-Green-All-Of-Washington-State’s-Highways-In-90-Days! Output: Help-Green-All-Of-Washington-State%E2%80%99s-Highways-In-90-Days! Input: Club-Tesla-Québec-Gatherings Output: Club-Tesla-Qu%C3%A9bec-Gatherings Arg, I meant to put this in Site Feedback.
