Netlify Collections Escaping Characters

I’ve been reading the collections documentation and can’t find anything about escaping special characters like semi-colons.

After publishing to netlify, it would be ideal to wrap the front matter in double quotes to avoid inline character escaping.

How to get this?

Hmm, not too sure about the best way to do that, or if it is possible.

CMS is not under super active development, so I would try to find simple solutions to problems like these: try calling it “managing-challenges-the-highs-and-lows” instead :slight_smile:

Or, you could experiment with html escaping the special characters (spaces and apostrophes) with the appropriate %20 type codes, as that may work better.

Thanks, I think I have verified how this is happening. Thanks for the html escaping solution.
