1. Moodle databases should have been "migrated" to utf8 around versions 1.6 or 1.7. If that is right, out of the following four documents, only the first one has any relevance:
2. The first three of the above pages have the text "migrate your database" linked to http://docs.moodle.org/XX/en/Database_migration. But there is only one http://docs.moodle.org/19/en/Database_migration. In the last one, it is linked to http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Database_migration, which does not exist.
3. Same with the following four. If the conversion supposed to happen in 1.6/7 only the first one makes sense:
BTW, is this a _conversion_ or a _migration_? Because there is also http://docs.moodle.org/XX/en/Moodle_migration.
4. All the four in 1. have "Free On-line Unicode Character Map" linked to http://www2.physics.ox.ac.uk/research/atmospheric-oceanic-and-planetary-physics. I don't see the connection.
5. Same thing with the "Free offline java application" http://www.catalysoft.com/catalog/unicode-1-1.jar. ??
Two general questions:
- How does the wiki duplication really happen, automated? If so, is it too difficult to automate "link cleaning" too?
- In fact I have left comments in some talk pages. Are they being used? For example, out the pages:
only the last one does exist. I believe, I've created it. But I can't create the other three. Why?
Edit: OK, got it. Because they are different wikis. But the tragic thing is, if log in anew, I'm logged out of the previous wiki!
Unfortunately I'm not knowledgeable enough about unicode to comment on your points, however I will try and find out more.
Regarding wiki duplication, a new version wiki is created by copying the latest stable version wiki, thus the 2.3 wiki will be created soon by copying the 2.2 wiki.
I don't understand your comment about being logged out of a previous wiki, as I'm frequently logged in to the 2.2, 2.1 and dev wikis simultaneously.
Hi Visvanath-I can't help your issue either, sorry, but I did want to second Helen's point about wikis - I also can be logged in to 2.2 and 2.1 at the same time ( and the French wiki too as a matter of fact) in the same browser, in different tabs.

It would have been nice 'course, if I could have solved those UTF issues with the help of wiki(s) without pestering the same person (see the two discussions I've linked in my previous post). It is too late anyway.
But how about the non-unicode questions, I mean the two general questions at the end of my previous post?

Expect my next "clarification" to grow by 25%!

I was perhaps confused by the four copies of the same article, with and without Talk pages. I rechecked: Yes, I can log into all four in the same browser session. Not that it is going to make a big difference, I'm out of this caucus race anyway. (I'll leave the Alice quote out this time
Oh - I enjoy your Alice quotes
Here comes the quote:
"First [the Dodo] marked out a racecourse, in a sort of circle ("the exact shape doesn't matter," it said), and then all the party were placed along the course here and there. There was no "One, two, three, and away!" but they began running when they liked, and left off when they liked, so that it was not easy to know when the race was over."
OK, I got it. The remaining question is what "it" is for the newcomer.
`--I proceed. "Edwin and Morcar, the earls of Mercia and Northumbria, declared for him: and even Stigand, the patriotic archbishop of Canterbury, found it advisable--"'
`Found what?' said the Duck.
`Found it,' the Mouse replied rather crossly: `of course you know what "it" means.'
`I know what "it" means well enough, when I find a thing,' said the Duck: `it's generally a frog or a worm. The question is, what did the archbishop find?'
