Hi,

I would like to transform a string into a dashed url in lower case, e.g.

L'évènement Xyz

should be

l-evenement-xyz

(note that I need to get rid of the accents, like é, è, ë, ê, ô, ö, ù, û, ü , î, ï, à, â, ä
also quotes may appear like the example above, but also !, ?, :,  etc. )

Thank you for any help.

you could use strtr to translate characters
eg:
$yournewstring = strtr($yourstring, "()!$'?: ,&+-/.`R}aS~x¥µÀÁÂÃÄÅÆÇÈÉÊËÌÍÎÏÐÑÒÓÔÕÖØÙÚÛÜÝßàáâãäåæçèéêëìíîïðñòóôõöøùúûüýÿ",
     "--------------SOZsozYYuAAAAAAACEEEEIIIIDNOOOOOOUUUUYsaaaaaaaceeeeiiiionoooooouuuuyy");

Experts Exchange have some problem with the encoding,
e.g. in your code you replace 'a' by 's',
but I know Experts Exchange replaces some characters.


Thank you !
