    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: (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 [guide]Power Macintosh G3 (Blue and White)[/guide] and deleted the page with the malformed title; it should all be fine now.
