That's funny, I though of exactly that during the night while
brainstorming about MapOSMatic.

I don't think there's really something we can do about this though,
because we can't give links containing these characters (the URLs can't
contains non-ascii characters just yet, IIRC).

If you have a idea of how we could transliterate the map names into ...
something, we're interested and will try to implement it!
