I've just added a note about Z├╝rich (in switzerland page) with a link, and then hit the link to go and add some things, but it's failed miserably [the page shows Z then a box] due to the foreign charecter.

Is this a known/fixable issue? Or should i just ignore any town/City with a foreign charecter in it's name (many Swedish ones, for example) for now?

I think the character encoding might not be UTF or unicode. In edit mode, use the character map at the bottom of the page to replace whatever characters that comes out as a square box. That should fix it.

Ok, should be working now. The URL does end up looking a little ugly with such characters, but it still should work. Might also be worth making a page called 'Zurich' (ie, no strange characters) that redirects to the correct page.
