It seems as if these problems are due to PmWiki mistaking words starting with
a capital letter and containing non-US-ASCII characters for WikiWords. This
can be resolved by surrounding such words with [= and =]. This tells PmWiki
explicitly not to make the word a WikiWord.

This is probably not the best way to do this, but I don't know of a way to
fix this in PmWiki's code. Maybe someone more knowlegeable has some advice?
