When copy pasting 'Joëlle' in the nodename from certain locations (Outlook mail and word definitely) they get changed into 'Jo¨elle' which of course does not get filtered via the config settings for special character replacements.
1 of the solutions i would propose, is a different system for nodename validation, instead of filtering out the many possible weird characters, why not turn the system around.
add a config node with a regular expressions that needs to pass when nodenames are tested against it. a-zA-Z0-9 etc.. and this way you don't have to exclude so many characters.
and on a sidenote, why not do a urlencode on the nodename string before using it in the URL?
Considering this a duplicate as this same discussion is being held in the related issue. Please read and pitch in. :)
