Icelandic characters don't work with tags (3 posts)

    For some reason I cannot use Icelandic characters in tags.

    The icelandic word "skoĆ°a" should change to "skoda" in the url but it changes to "sko%c3%b0a" which is VERY frustrating.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    More info:
    I can always change the slug name manually. The problem is that everytime I add an existing tag to a new post the slug name changes back to these scrambled words.

    Can I change the slug for tags FOREVER?

    Ok I think I fixed it by adding this code to formatting.php (right after: "// Decompositions for Latin Extended-A":

    chr(195).chr(144) => 'D', chr(195).chr(176) => 'd',
     chr(195).chr(158) => 'TH',chr(195).chr(190) => 'th',
     chr(195).chr(134) => 'AE',chr(195).chr(166) => 'ae',

    This should be apart of the default code!!!

    Where can I send the code so it will be in the next version of WP?
