Url rewrite - replacing characters

Hello all,

I know close to nothing about rewrite so what i have is copied from other solutions and works great but i need more... Namely:
Right now I use attached code to make links look like
result_article.asp~A_Id~Title_Of_Article~A_Id2~31~A_Id3~33
Instead of :
result_article.asp?A_Id=Title_Of_Article&A_Id2=31&A_Id3=33

What I need it to be is something more like:
result_article_Title_Of_Article.htm
OR
result_article~Title_Of_Article.htm
If possible at all...

strings can sometimes have 4 paramters!
Up to A_Id4= (there's only 1 with text other 3 will always be numeric... the one with text is more show then function

If not possible... anything making it look more like a static filename where the parameter after A_Id1= Title_Of_article - has a big role...

Is there an easy page on the web where i can find out more on how to get this done or suggestions... Remember plz MEGANOOOOBB!!!!!

Thanks for any suggestions!
WKR
