Convert soft hyphens when sanitizing titles

When copying and pasting titles from a different website, sometimes soft hyphens are included in the copied text. Unfortunately, the sanitize_title_with_dashes function doesn't take care of this eventuality, since it doesn't convert %c2%ad instances to empty strings.

In our client's installation, this led to slugs not being generated correctly, making those posts inaccessible.
