Looks like a double-encoding problem to me. Somehow, the page name, which is 
passed in via the URL, is not getting decoded to produce the name with spaces 
in it. Then, the quoteWikinameFS function is doing its work on the %-encoded 
string rather than the actual page name.

I've copied the list in my reply because someone else might have an immediate 
solution to this, whereas I would need to look at the code.
