Some characters don't convert correctly at permalinks (non SEO friendly)

    When adding a new post/page in WordPress the title auto converts to a safe URL for the permalink, i.e. spaces become hyphens, accents and strange characters are removed and so on... For example:

    Title:
    This is my favourite post
    Generated permalink:
    http://example.com/this-is-my-favourite-post

    The problem is that when using ampersands (or other non alphabetical characters) they disappear:

    Title:
    Black&White best designed websites
    Generated permalink:
    http://example.com/blackwhite-best-designed-websites
    What it should be:
    http://example.com/black-white-best-designed-websites

    Which cause the two keywords (black, white) to become one (blackwhite) loosing the keywords in the URL. Same happens with forward slashes and other characters like JavaScript/jQuery becomes javascriptjquery.

    Would be helpful if some characters (/, &, @...) where converted to hyphens.

    Cheers :)
