Summary: Invalid section-IDs - especially when using special
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.16-svn
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Page rendering

When creating sections like:

==Überschrift (german for "heading")==

mediawiki produces the following code in HTML:

<h2> <span class="mw-headline" id=".C3.9Cberschrift">Überschrift</span></h2>

* id=".C3.9Cberschrift" is clearly wrong (id and name attributes must begin
with a letter)

* it's hard to target such IDs with css

* Why create a span with an ID in the first place? An element with an id should
only exist once in a html document; it cannot be guaranteed that users don't
create equal sections (that will lead to multiple IDs with the same name)
