Control charachters in titles

by scottstef (Curate)

Is there a list of control charachters that should not be used in the title of a node? I looked at one last night that had a set of quotation marks in them and it previewed ok, however when I submitted, the title disappeared from the quote marks to the end of the line.

I saw in chatterbox that John_M._Dlugosz had used a control charachter in a title and it broke Newest_Nodes.
Is there a man page for this feature?

Control charachters in titles - "quotes"

    The double-quote characters disappear because of a bug in preview, not because they are disallowed. See Problem with quotes in node titles and its replies.

    However, I thought it was fixed, since it seemed to work OK the following day.

    And it's working now.
