A Unicode slug is a simplified, URL-friendly version of a title. To create a Unicode slug for a Unicode title, you can follow these steps:
- Convert the title to lowercase.
- Remove any special characters and punctuation marks, and replace them with hyphens or spaces.
- Replace any whitespace characters with a single hyphen.
- Remove any consecutive hyphens.
- Remove any leading or trailing hyphens.
For example, to convert the title "Unicode Characters: An Introduction" to a Unicode slug, you would perform the following steps:
- Convert to lowercase: "unicode characters: an introduction"
- Remove special characters: "unicode characters an introduction"
- Replace whitespace with hyphen: "unicode-characters-an-introduction"
- Remove consecutive hyphens: "unicode-characters-an-introduction"
- Remove leading/trailing hyphens: "unicode-characters-an-introduction"
Note: It is important to check for edge cases where the output may be a reserved word, such as "new" or "delete".
