View Full Version : Bad URL generated by project assistant

04-06-2006, 06:25 PM
When the project assistant generates the URL for the company web site, it doesn't handle case or punctuation properly.

For example, if the company name is Acme, Inc., the URL generated is


which is illegal.

In generating the URL, it should:

Convert everything to lower case (not strictly required, but strongly encouraged)
Remove invalid punctuation characters such as "," and "."

I realize it may still not get it exactly right in many cases, but generating invalid syntax just looks silly and creates a very bad first impression.
