They are, per default. You can even have chinese or hebrew chars in 

Any non-broken browser should get it correctly. Mozilla, Firefox (even IE).

But I have seen a broken Konqueror version yesterday, that showed some 
strange behaviour: First it followed the link correctly and displayed 
correct page. When just reloading that URL by pressing enter in the URL 
line, it went to a wrong page (with that funny character in pagename).

So maybe just try some different browser.
