PI Webparts AdHoc trend and tag names with special characters

I've come across a situation where our client has tag names with special characters like ä, which is used in the swedish and finnish languages.

 

When these tags are part of a PI Notification, and you click the "Instant PI Webparts trend" link along with the notification email, the adhoc trend cannot read these characters - and thus the tags are not shown in the trend. I tried using the html equivalent - which is Ä for this character, in the URL but that didn't work either.

 

I don't know whether this is supported or not (probably not best practice when it comes to naming pi tags), but is there any workarounds I can do without renaming the tag?
