Talk:Goedel Escher Bach

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The book's title actually has commas, a subtitle, and an umlaut: Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid. Arguably the subtitle (and the umlaut) shouldn't be in the article title. But the commas really should be included. Right? If I were certain about the form the page title should take, I'd change it myself. Opinions? - Rootbeer 2002-04-04

you can do that cleanly by going to Goedel Escher Bach and opening "pages that link here" in a new window. Then edit Goedel Escher Bach to say #REDIRECT [[new article name]]. (You'll have to substitute -- for the colon if you include the subtitle.) Save that, and at the new page, paste in what was at the old page. Then change links to the old page to point to the new one.

Or maybe you were just asking if the real "title" should be as close as possible to the actual one on the book? I'd take that as a given. My $.02. We can always have redirects to the correct one.  :-) Koyaanis Qatsi

Okay: I'm moving it to Gödel, Escher, Bach. (The subtitle is too unwieldy for making links.) - Rootbeer 2002-04-07
