What special characters shouldn't be used in Confluence page names?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Search

What qualifies as 'special characters' in this context (https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/search-139528.html)? Might be nice to link to that information in the documentation.

It's a bug in Confluence. Vote for CONFSERVER-11285.

Why does not Confluence support at least standard latin1/latin2 characters when even open source Wikipedia does support Unicode chars in ulr. Most modern browsers do transparent url encoding/decoding. E.g. https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kůň (See page “Horse” in Wikipedia in different languages and check uris).

Confluence should not reinvent the wheel and support standard RFC 3986 for “not plain alphanumeric” urls, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percent-encoding.

Notice the issue will turn 10 years old on April 1st and is not considered a bug. It will never be fixed/addressed.
