Quote marks in stubs/post permalink URLs: Why?

  • The stubs or permalink URLs produced for posts will retain double quote marks. In other words, you’ll have a URL like:

    http://myblog.com/2007/10/23/my-“cool”-blog-post/

    Perhaps this is according to standards, but in practice this freaks out some software, for instance many home-grown URL submission systems.

    It also looks stupid and un-URL-like.

    Why not just strip all punctuation when making stubs.

  • What version?
    I just tried on a brand new 2.3 install and it DOES strip the quotes from the slug.
