This bug is invalid. The page is sent as utf-8 (a universal character encoding).
Randomly inserting text that is of a different character encoding (Windows-1252)
is something that is undetectable.

I have changed the Lista_de_Kernel_PT_BR page to UTF-8.

note http://gentoo-wiki.com/index.php?title=Lista_de_Kernel_PT_BR&oldid=14862
(Windows-1252)
and http://gentoo-wiki.com/index.php?title=Lista_de_Kernel_PT_B (UTF-8)
