Hey guys. I'm trying to work on a guide page that had a malformed title.

Here's what I did. The original entry was "Power Macintosh G3 (Blue". I renamed that to what the intended title was... "Power Macintosh G3 (Blue & White)". However, I now want to delete the original page, which currently has a re-direct to the new page. However, each time I try to delete it, it deletes the new (correct) page.

How do I go about doing this?

Here are the links:
http://guides.macrumors.com/Power_Macintosh_G3_%28Blue (you will see the redirect at the top, which was the old title page)

Wikimedia seems to have bugs with '&' characters in titles. The 'Power Macintosh G3 (Blue & White)' page was never actually deleted, it's just that when you tried to go to it it would take you to 'Power Macintosh G3 (Blue' instead.

I've moved the article to Power Macintosh G3 (Blue and White) and deleted the page with the malformed title; it should all be fine now.
