Special characters in titles versus the URL - truth or fiction?
Long ago, I had problems with special characters in the titles of my articles. Now it appears perhaps HubPages has programmed a solution for this? Is this true just for HubPages or for all sites?
For example, if I use "&" in a title, as I remember it, it would translate to "%$&?" or something similar. Now when I run this test through HubPages it translates readily to just "-".
Questions: 1.) Has HP programmed this fix? 2.) Is this fix on other websites too?
I am attaching a snippet of this test for your review.
Thanks for helping me understand this technology.

Special characters in image captions get messed up. This has been a recurrent issue. It was fixed, but now it's broken again.
