Description

This is about the Title and URL fields in the post edit screen.

Currently, single accents are treated as valid entities for URLs:

TITLE: Als wär´s ein Stück von mir
=> URL: http://domain.tld/als-war´-s-ein-stuck-von-mir
=> URL: http://domain.tld/als-war%C2%B4-s-ein-stuck-von-mir

Note how the accent is inaccurately used as an apostrophe here. Sadly, many users do that.
Because it is a single accent, the same behavior as with an apostrophe would save the URL here:

TITLE: Als wär´s ein Stück von mir (U+00B4 Acute Accent)
-OR-
TITLE: Als wär`s ein Stück von mir (U+0060 Grave Accent)
-OR-
TITLE: Als wär's ein Stück von mir (U+0027 Apostrophe)
-OR-
TITLE: Als wär’s ein Stück von mir (U+2018 Left Single Quotation)
-OR-
TITLE: Als wär‘s ein Stück von mir (U+2019 Right Single Quotation)

-SHOULD ALL BE REMOVED FROM URLS LIKE APOSTROPHES-

=> URL: http://domain.tld/als-wars-ein-stuck-von-mir

Disclaimer: Is there a need for non-western languages to keep accents and/or single quotations in URLs?
