i type my blog posts in a word processor which convert ' to ’.

wordpress converts ’ to %e2%80%99 in slug...

i would like to suggest that ’ should be treated as ' while generating slugs!

another issue is …

… = ... it is also failed to sanitize during slug formation.

  • Keywords needs-patch added; post slugs removed

WordPress should treat ’ as ', but ’ should also be removed from the rule: [^%a-z0-9 _-], but does not for some reason.

You can probably get away with creating a plugin for now that hooks into the sanitize_title filter and removes it that way.
