What is the best URL for "químico": "qu%C3%Admico" or "quimico"?
I notice that Wikipedia is using "qu%C3%Admico".

As a speaker of Spanish, I'd say just plain "quimico". No accent needed for an URL (ie: not expected, not relevant and missed many times in writting).

¡Hola!

I'll vote for "quimico" as well...

The accented "í" is an extended ASCII character, not readily available on [many¦some¦English] keyboards, and therefore [could¦does] pose a problem if one is typing the URL in their address bar.

Definitly 'quimico'. For Spain, at least.
Don't know about latin america and other spanish peoples of the world.

Is 'chisme' Spanish for widget? Babelfish says so.

> Don't know about latin america

"Químico" [KEE-mee-koh] ("chemical" en Inglés) is correct for Latin America. :)
