The page for the français tag (which uses a ç) doesn't work right. In particular, it doesn't list the post that uses it.

Weird, the crazy c gets encoded into two characters instead of one, but if I remove one, Apache throws a forbidden flag blocking what I would guess it thinks is a utf URL hack of some sort.

I can't seem to encode it or decode it easily, but I'll keep trying stuff to see if I can get it working.

"crazy c"?!?

Your URL decoding routine doesn't seem to handle multibyte character sequences very well. Browsers send the URL as UTF-8 because your pages are UTF-8, yet when you're decoding the URL you're treating the data as if it were just plain ASCII.

(in case you hadn't figured it out yet)

You could also just use ç (& # 2 3 1 ;) or Ç (& # 1 9 9 ;) instead.
