    When creating new content, the title is used to generate the content's URL. There are certain characters that are fine in a title, but are not legal URL characters. When a hapless user sees the error:

              Message from webpage
              The URL: '/$-My-Awesome-Job-$' is not valid.

    She thinks she did something wrong. Of course, it's the dollar sign that is not acceptable, but the URL generator is the one that is at fault. Is there a way the URL generator can stick with legal URL characters, so the user doesn't see this senseless error?
