I have test this on the Chinese main page of pmwiki.org. Gladly it is 
what I need. However, I don't know if there are any non-european 
language need "Ending become part of the link text", so this may not be 
a safe bet. Furthermore, there may be some English site want use UTF-8 
encoding to be compatible with more languages.

Now, I suggest another choice. We could allow .XLPage file control this 
option, then wiki administrators could choose for their own need. For 
example, we could turn off "Ending become part of the link text" by 
default for PmWikiZhCn.XLPage file.

I don't know if this change is hard or not, may Mr.Michaud consider 
about this. For me, I am satisfied as long as we have a method to turn 
off "Ending become part of the link text" when use asian language.

Thanks again for your great work. We love PmWiki!
