The only way this can be consistently addressed is by romanizing the ID. In HTML5, all sorts of IDs are valid (effectively any string). However, when you throw urlencoding into it, things get hairy. The URL basically has to be urlencoded to be valid. So that means that the ID definition itself can be in either state. When the ID is urlencoded, IE and Chrome are fine. When the ID is not urlencoded, Chrome and FireFox are ok. Things might be more consistent if the URL wasn't encoded, but doing that will expose us to some problems in certain areas.

So that leads us to simply romanizing the ID. You can now force romanization in certain scenarios in the link builders. I will probably investigate exposing it further for a future release if we can get enough performance out of it.
