[edit] Explanation

{{w:wiktionarypar|ASCII}}An w:ASCII character is an w:alphanumeric character or one of several standard keyboard symbols (see article for more).

{{w:wiktionarypar|diacritic|diacritical|diacritical mark}}A diacritical mark is a symbol added to a letter that functions to change its w:pronunciation, meaning, or other characteristic. Accents and umlauts are examples of diacritical marks. Conversely, ligatures and standard w:Greek letters are not diacritical.

Since names using such characters are not searchable to TZMWiki or Wikipedia users (i.e., they cannot be typed in the search bar without using advanced technical knowledge or additional aids such as keyboard mapping software), most such titles should be transliterated into the common English representation per w:Romanization and moved to that name. For the titles that properly do and should use special characters and diacritics, per Wikipedia naming conventions, their romanized equivalents should be redirected and listed using one of the templates mentioned below.

[edit] Redirect templates

Any redirect title that contains only ASCII characters and redirects to a title containing a non-ASCII, non-diacritical character should use the template:

{{R from ASCII}}

Any redirect title that contains only ASCII characters and redirects to a title containing a diacritical mark should use the template:

{{R to diacritics}}

Any redirect title that contains a diacritical mark and redirects to a title with no diacritical marks should use the template:

{{R from diacritics}}

Any redirect title that contains a non-ASCII, non-diacritical mark and redirects to a title with no diacritical marks should use the template:
