I think it's the MediaWiki software doing some 'normalization'. I was bit by that once when putting several diacritics on _i_, my i-breve + combining ogonek becoming i-ogonek (with dot!)+ combining breve. The trick is tu put a zero-width joiner (conveniently &zwj; in HTML) between the characters. The best solution is to create a page page [[Finlaesk]] which redirects to the real page. In fact I just used my powers as assistant admin to do just that, as well as moving [[Fínlæ̨sk]] moved to [[Fínlǣsk]], again with a redirect from the old name, so now you can type <> in your browser to get to <>! :-) Hope you don't mind! /BP
