Sasper's revision[edit]

Sasper's revision needs to be undone. There is no visual example anymore and this is unacceptable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.121.165.4 (talk) 22:56, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

C2AD[edit]

Many times I found a character with the code %C2%AD. I think it should be mentioned in this article

Examples: this newspaper article - copy the text: "Austria, Un­garia, Cehia, Slovenia, Croatia si Ro­ma­nia" - now put square brackets around Ro­ma­nia - Ro­ma­nia. Click on the red linkg - you get:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ro%C2%ADma%C2%ADnia

instead of 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romania

This article: Sancţiunile luate rapid de ministrul Ion Bazac în „Scan­dalul Slatina” au generat un con­flict deschis între Minis­terul Sănătăţii şi Colegiul Medicilor din România.

I found some information about this character here:

Explaining "Line breaks: pri¦ori|tize"[edit]

The Oxford Dictionaries has guidelines for how to set line breaks for English words, e.g. see prioritize. It seems to differentiate between broken bar (¦) and vertical bar (|). Is this a lexical standard? Is it documented on Wikipedia? The wikipedia article states "The broken bar has hardly any practical application and does not appear to have any clearly identified uses distinct from the vertical bar", but ref. the use in the Oxford Dictionaries, this seems to be wrong. Bjornte (talk) 13:07, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Good idea to figure out what Oxford's convention is and add that info to this article and/or to Vertical_bar#Solid_vertical_bar_vs_broken_bar. It's the kind of thing dictionary prelims state. I lack print versions of Oxford dicts, and the online version seems to lack appropriate links to prelims content—if it's there, it's too hard to find. Hope someone comes along who can shed some light. Quercus solaris (talk) 21:47, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
