For Slovenian letters čšž (but it should also work for others unicode 
characters) we use converter from one of our contributors at

While some alphabets (Japanese and Russian come to mind) get converted 
to HTML entities automaticaly, I noticed that Estonian and Slovenian use 
the same word (Tadžikistan), but [[et:Tadžikistan]] works in English 
Wikipedia, while [[sl:Tadžikistan]] does not.  See thread at:

So converter is the way to go, at least for Slovenian.
