What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm interested in knowing how StackOverflow sanitizes the question titles for use in the URLs.

Are they using a custom matching and replacing pattern or something as simple as a Server.UrlEncode with some replacements?
