Supporting characters on letters in names on profile pages
We have the following page for this PC member:
however his name is: Éric, not Eric
Is it possible to support the text on the page for extra characters on letters in peoples names Éric?
This is a very common thing among European languages, less of an issue in English.
It does not make sense to try and fix the URL to support this though.

but I really want:
Currently it is stuck at:
Can you please fix it so that it is:
I have changed it back to

this is consistent with his other web pages.
As he has stated to me in email "Eric" is not correct, hence why he uses "etanter" for URLs as "Éric" can't easily be added to URLs.
I guess there is always people who want to do something different.
I am happy to go by your call.
I suspect though this issue may pop up again though.
Alright. It is a matter of playing with the interface a bit
The URL key is not updated automatically on changing the name. So I changed the first name to E, updated the URL key, changed first name back to Éric, and voilà.
cool, I like workarounds, nice work :-)
