It was pointed out to me today that I don't need to copy and paste the Æ in "Æther" to respond to her comments, the system accepts "Aether" as well.
I'm curious to know if this is a special case for the Æ character, or if the comment notification system has a unicode (or other character set) translation table to support this feature.
"ü" would be another character, for instance, that might be translated to the equivalent english character. (as well as the o and a umlauts)
Not asking for a change, just want to make sure I'm not doing unnecessary work when replying to comments by understanding the system. My search-fu is weak, as I was unable to find a prior discussion on this...
