Hi guys,

I apologize for this being a foolish question, if indeed it is.

But what is the deal with this:

I understand that sluggifiers are not perfect, but surely, java-script should be just 'javascript'.

Just wonderin' :)

It should be, and it would be if the original poster had written 'javascript'. Instead they wrote 'java script', and the sluggifier turned the space into a dash, as it always does.

And now I feel foolish. Thank you. Maybe we need an intelligent slug condensification system. (or something) – karim79 Dec 21 '10 at 22:40
@karim79 or someone can just edit the title to fix the problem. – user149432 Dec 22 '10 at 0:25
@Mark Trapp - Thanks. I realise that :). Additionally, I realise that I asked a dumb question. And I thank you for changing java script to JavaScript. I am an idiot. – karim79 Dec 22 '10 at 0:48
@karim79 don't sweat it. :) – user149432 Dec 22 '10 at 0:50
