Permalinks £ sign (2 posts)

    Hi

    Im running 2.3.1 and all is working superbly except one little problem.

    If my post contains the british '£' sign, I get a 404 error

    I.e. my post title reads

    Slow Responses Cost £31 Billion!

    The permanlink creates-

    http://www.XXXXX.com/wordpress/2007/09/30/slow-responses-cost-%c2%a331-billion/

    and in turn produces a 404 error

    Is there anything I can do to rectify this?

    Thanks in advance

    Strange. I've tried in a test install and WP "cleaned up" the slug like this:
    ...cost-31-billion/
