Spanish characters Answered

Would be nice if someone technic staff study the issue of the Spanish character, which appear well in the texts but not in the titles.

They are the following: á é í ó ú ü ñ Á É Í Ó Ú Ü Ñ ¡ ¿

Nina, I understand that the problem is not prioritary, but (almost?) all programation languajes have a function to translate a list of characters into another list:

In example

url_address = translate(title_string,"áéíóúüñÁÉÍÓÚÜÑ¡¿","aeiouunAEIOUUN--")

Add all US ASCII characters not allowed for urls, and it is all. That so simple code line would solve the problem forever.

Thanks for your concern!

Moved to feedback.

I know it's been talked about as a feature but I haven't heard of it being a priority.

I understand, James. But those awful characters in the titles and notes are so annoying...
