This post was prompted by the horrific permalink for my previous post... "http://escrib.blogspot.com/2004/12/itrntinliztin.html"!

As Charl has said, mixing memorable slugs with hard-to-remember dates doesn't make any sense.

Why have something that is easy to remember only to bugger it up with something like 2004/08?

Slug-only permalinks are the way I'm going. Slugs shall be generated by the following rules:

  1. Formatting (such as HTML tags) is stripped from the title.
  2. Spaces are converted to ASCII hyphen-minus characters.
  3. Optionally, some form of language-dependent transcription takes place to put characters into the ASCII range for prettier URLs.
