Hi, Is there a good technical explanation for why Zope doesn't allow non-ASCII characters in URLs? I'd like to be able to let URLs work like this example from Wikipedia: http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/メインページ When I try adding an object with ID "メインページ" in Zope 2, I get the following error message: Error Type: BadRequest Error Value: The id "&#12513;&#12452;&#12531;&#12506;&#12540;&#12472; " contains characters illegal in URLs. Is there a fundamental reason (ie. Python objects can only be ASCII) or is it simply bugs that need to be fixed?
As Paul indicated: the issue dates back to the times when there was only ASCII in the URL world. Especially object IDs have to be ascii - well...Zope came from US :-) Andreas
