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.

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.
