#4559: Non-english characters break links
 Reporter:  nyodulf       |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Members       |    Version:  1.6.1
 Severity:  critical      |   Keywords:
 Non-english characters in members' names break the links to their
 profiles. The characters get stripped from the href attribute. Examples

 The link href is, for example: "domain.com/members/braña/" when viewed in
 Firebug. Clicking on the link gives a 404 and the url reads
 "domain.com/members/braa/" . Right-clicking on the link, choosing 'copy
 link location' and pasting the result into the url bar reads:
 "domain.com/members/bra%C3%B1a/", but when you try to visit the link it
 once again gives 404 with the "braa" url.
