Some organizations use localized URL's and some languages have non-standard characters (other than a-z), for example:


Tridion does not allow some of these characters in the standard configuration, and I am aware this behavior can be changed in the cm_xml_usr.xsd file.

Is there any concern to update the directory and filepath regex to allow for these non-standard characters? And what would this regex look like?


In the (far) past, we have observed that not all web servers/browser deal equally well with non-ASCII characters in paths/URLs. Note that Tridion does not support IRIs (internationalized URIs), so if you have non-ASCII characters in your path, these will be UTF-8 URL encoded (resulting in quite unreadable URLs). Most browsers will present the URL unencoded to the user (and then it looks fine again).

Have you considered solving this outside of the CMS with URL Rewrites.

You could still manage the rewrite rules within the CMS with a content modeled solution if need be.

Be sure also that the presentation file system allows such characters in the folder name.
