 So the other day one of my readers wrote to tell me that some of the
 images in my articles were not loading. The reason I wasn't aware of this
 is that the problem only appear in Safari browsers, but I have found out
 the problem shows in Chrome for iOS. I have not tested on Android phones.
 It works perfect in Chrome for desktop and Firefox.

 Take a look at this article fx: http://stayclassy.dk/laekre-herrebukser/

 It is only images with "Å" in the file name. Fx. "herrebukser-til-
 forÅret.png" - Æ and Ø which are also special Danish characters don't
 cause a problem.

 I have been in contact with my hosting and theme creators, but the
 conclusion we came to is that it must be a WordPress bug. The reason we
 are certain of this is that I have tried on an entirely other website of
 mine where the exact same problem arises. WordPress simply can't handle
 images with "Å" in the file name.

 I am pretty confident it has to do with one of the recent updates as this
 doesn't affect every single article on my website. In fact it is only
 images in articles from after the WP update the 9. of December where the
 problem is apparent. I think I updated WP the 13th which explains a few
 articles from the 10, 11 and 12th of December where images with Å in file
 name load fine.

 My website is http://www.Stayclassy.dk

 My version is 4.4.2, but I couldn't choose that one as it wasn't there.

 I look forward hearing from you.
