      Description

      Currently we can write friendly URLs in ASCII languages. We don't support other languages like Japanese (Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana) or Chinese or Arab.

      In the past browsers have this limitations but they have evolved and now support non-ASCII characters. You can see an introduction to this issue at REF1

      The main goal of this story is to remove this constraints from Liferay.

      How friendly URLs works at the moment:

      1 - The Friendly URL is first normalized so only ascii characters are left
      2 - It accepts lowercase characters from a to z and digits from 0 to 9
      3 - All uppercase characters from A to Z are transformed to lowercase
      4 - One can specify slashes ("/") or periods (".") depending on the boolean parameter "periodsAndSlashes"
      5 - All other sequence of characters not mentioned before are ignored and replaced by a dash ("-")

      Examples:

      /período --> /periodo (step 1 will transform í to i)
      /PeRíoDo --> /periodo (step 1 will transform í to i and step 3 will transform to lowercase)
      /PeRioD0 --> /period0 (step 3 will transform to lowercase and digit at the end is left since it's allowed)
      /日r本r刀 --> /-r-r- (step 5 will replace non ascii characters to dashes)
      /日本rr刀 --> /-rr- (step 5 will replace a continuos sequence of non ascii characters to one dash)
      

      How do we require friendly URLs to works from now on:

      1 - The Friendly URL is first normalized so only ascii characters are left Accepts the Unicode characters
      2 - It accepts lowercase characters from a to z and digits from 0 to 9
      3 - All uppercase characters from A to Z are transformed to lowercase
      4 - One can specify slashes ("/") or periods (".") depending on the boolean parameter "periodsAndSlashes"
      5 - All other sequence of characters not mentioned before are ignored and replaced by a dash ("")

      Examples:

      /período --> /período 
      /PeRíoDo --> /período 
      /PeRioD0 --> /period0 
      /日r本r刀 --> /日r本r刀 
      /日本rr刀 --> /日本rr刀
