#729 closed defect (fixed)

SlugFields and local characters

When I use prepopulate_from with a SlugField, and use swedish characters (å, ä and ö), these characters are used in the SlugField, but when I press submit, the admin tells me that the SlugField contains illegal characters.

The admin is right in this case. The ideal solution would be to convert letters like å and ä to a, ö to o and so on, but a simpler solution would be to simply remove them. In any case: they shouldn't be there.

This is of course also true for many other languages, and would be good if it worked better. Personally, I added three replace-lines to, but I suspect that solution sucks, is slow, and not very extendable.
