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.

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. :)
