      Description

      It seems that if you import a word document that has title with special windows character or invalid characters for page names, when using the split function of the office importer with the method to build the page name from the header title, then some invalid characters are used for the page name.

      Try with a single quote or a Euro character

      I can provide more info to reproduce if needed

          XWiki supports any character in page names so I don't think we need to apply any filtering. I didn't notice any problem while testing with XWiki Enterprise 4.2.
