You can use free links ["...."].

You mean in the URL? Right (for 1.2).

For 1.3 we plan to use _ in the URL, mapping the space character to _, 
so that ["Peter Burian"] gets http://yourwiki.com/Peter_Burian.

BUT: we also reverse map the _ in the URL to the space character, so the 
link / page title will display as "Peter Burian" again.

So your stuff will display as "O VERBAND Wien Ring LX AUTODB".

As it looks now, we will keep the "-" in the URLs of 1.3.
