On pmwiki.org (and for most people installing translation files),
the Vietnamese translation page should be named PmWikiVi/XLPage.
Feel free to overwrite/edit the one that exists now on pmwiki.org --
I simply created that page so that pages in the PmWikiVi group
would start displaying in utf-8.

You can always explicitly set a page's title using the (:title:)
(:title Words Squashed Together:)
At the moment PmWiki can't automatically space WikiWords containing
utf-8 letters because PHP doesn't provide a way of distinguishing
uppercase and lowercase in utf-8. (Although I'm hoping to come up
with a workaround for this.)
As far as the wikiwords in a url are concerned: there's not a good
way of places spaces in a url, one typically has to use underscore
(_) to simulate spaces. For a variety of reasons PmWiki hasn't
gone this route but it can be done as a local customization.

It's automatically handled on pmwiki.org; any group that begins
with PmWiki[A-Z][a-z] is automatically given its own internationalization
taken from that group's "XLPage". Other groups are unaffected.
