Wikipedia would like to start implementing UTF-8 encoded fragment identifiers in our URLs (to better support non-Latin languages), but the lack of Internet Explorer/Edge support is a blocker. See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T152540 and https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T75092.
Here is a test-case page: https://kaldari.github.io/scratchpad/unicode-fragment.html
In all browsers besides IE/Edge, clicking on any of the links will activate a red arrow next to the respective ID.
It looks like the test case failures may be due to IE/Edge’s not supporting non-ascii characters with the :target psuedo-selector.
