WebPositive - Auto change of , ; : to . in the address line

Reported by: lelldorin Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: - General Version: R1/Development

Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

English: I does not know any web address with a , ; : or other special sign, so it will be pretty to have a auto change in the WebPositve to make this signs automatically to . sign.

German: Es gibt meiner Meinung nach keine Webadresse, die ein , ; : oder anderes Sonderzeichen enthällt, daher wäre es schön, wenn der WebPositve diese Zeichen in der Adresszeile automatisch ändern würde.

Greetings Lelldorin

":" and "," are valid URL characters (":" for port and protocol, "," can be used in the URL itself -- example: http://www.freelists.org/post/haiku-development/Package-Management-devel-or-not-to-devel,32)

Indeed.

Ok : is correct, but if you type a address like foo,de or foo,com, a function in WebPositive to ame a foo.de or foo.com out of it, will be good.

Maybe auto correcting isn't suitable because of too many false positives. A better solution could be to have the error message rendered in the HTML view (which would do away with the annoying alert that currently pops up!), and add a "Did you mean {intelligently-guessed-URL}?" as a hyperlink.
Also, let's re-introduce Haikus as error messages again... :)

A period is the most common way to mark parts of an address

But seriously now, haikus work better in some languages than others, and you'd have to have people versifying in every language that Haiku eventually gets localised in. Not saying it can't be done but do we have the personnel?
