There is another issue coming up here. Some urls contain norveigan characters (æ, ø and å). The url with the word "speltbrød" is showing "speltbr%F8d". Is there a way to rewrite this so that the url vil show speltbrød?

Now the url domain.com/view_recipe.php?id=38&recipe_title=Speltbr%F8d get rewritten to domain.com/speltbr%F8d, but there is no url with that name, the correct one is domain.com/speltbrød.

You have a problem.

Per RFC 1738 that is the controlling reg, valid URLs are to only contain characters that are within the US-ASCII coded character set. If a character is not in this character set then it can be encoded, what is what is happening when you see the % mark.

Ideally you want to not have those characters in your urls. If you do, some will figure it out with the use of encoding, others will not. This is an obvious problem, one for which there is no workaround.
