Check string for special characters

I'm reading an XML document and creating a CMS Posting for eacho specific
node but i'm trying to save the posting using the title as Posting.Name.
For this to work i have to remove all special caracters that the Name
propertie doesn't support.

Can anyone hellp me?

Thanks

Characters like "/#$%&()=' or even √° √© √Ķ
This are a few examples.

A few examples aren't enough though - you need to have a very precise
specification of which characters are allowed and which aren't.
Otherwise you won't be able to write the code, and if you *could* write
the code, you wouldn't know whether or not it does what it should.
