I don't believe this is a bug. Look at the source code of the wikipedia page you are referring to. Search for the "Ararat (berg)" link and look at the src attribute of the link. This link just points to wiki/Ararat_%28berg%29. The usage of %28 and %29 for the ( and ) characters is known as url encoding. You can find more about that subject on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urlencode I believe this issue can be closed.
I'm sure it can be closed - for example, running your mouse over the url-encoded links above automatically generates the proper link.
I just installed Opera. Opera shows it like it should be. So it is a bug. And yes, it is true that with Firefox you go to the correct page. But it has to be shown correctly in the address bar. With Firefox is doesn't, with Opera it does. And I do prefer Firefox.
Firefox 3 does this fine. Going to this link in FF3: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ararat_%28berg%29 Shows the decoded URL as: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ararat_(berg) There's quite a few bug reports mentioning this change; not sure which to dupe to, off hand. Closing as WFM.
