TWiki rewrites filenames with spaces, but no rewriting took place on this name: DataCenterEnergyEfficiency(TUI3004B)[1].pdf

and the results weren't pretty. Sort of what you are seeing now. If you look at the raw text of this, the filename is between the equals signs.

-- TWiki:Main/MichaelStroucken - 30 Mar 2007

This is yet another example of unexpected consequences of changing the WikiWord rule. TWiki:Codev/ProposedChangeToWikiWordSpec treats number as lower case letters, e.g. TUI3004B is now a valid WikiWord. I find this an unfortunate spec change; however, it is too late to change the spec yet again.

Workaround: Escape the linking of the WikiWord. This can be done by:

  • prefixing the WikiWord with a <nop>
  • surrounding text in <noautolink>...</noautolink>
  • turning of autolinking with a NOAUTOLINK = on preferences setting.

I am setting this to "no action required" since this is the current spec.

I don't understand what

DataCenterEnergyEfficiency(SomeTWikiWord)[1].pdf (sic)

has to do with adding numbers to WikiWords. This seems to me to be an unrelated issue, todo more with the scope of the = being ignored.

setting back to, New

TUI3004B is now a WikiWord because numbers are treated as lower case letters, it is linked in above example because of the leading parenthesis.
