 What I understand this issue to be:

 This issue demonstrates that the slug displays to the user in it's (url)
 encoded form.

 The slug is used in urls.


    URLs are written only with the graphic printable characters of the
    US-ASCII coded character set. The octets 80-FF hexadecimal are not
    used in US-ASCII, and the octets 00-1F and 7F hexadecimal represent
    control characters; these must be encoded.

 So, while the slug appears to the end user as 'gibberish letters' it is
 actually the
 (properly) encoded version of the string.

 To resolve this issue, display the slug to the user decoded.
 (i.e. so it looks like it did when they created it)

 I don't know Hebrew, so to recreate this issue, I set the slug to name
 that contains non US-ASCII characters.

 Categories -> Category Name (testing) -> Category Slug

 see attached before and after screen shots.

 see attached patch files

 these changes 'work', I'm just not sure it's the most appropriate/elegant
 solution, someone more familiar with the code base should review. (I
 believe I have added the necessary keywords)
