I was trying to make a link to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamón but it clearly doesn't work. Even trying this or this doesn't work (view source, 'this' should be a link).

You need to URL-encode the ó character (as %C3%B3). Some forum-friendly browsers will do this for you when you copy the url out of the address bar... This should be a valid link.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamon also works -- note that Wikipedia frequently supports the plain-ASCII version of international characters.

    Yes, but it takes you to a disambiguation page instead of directly to the one regarding ham.
