I couldn't find a previously created macro that took a string of text and encoded it into a URL format that didn't use % encoding, so I made one.
This version 1.0 and does what I need. If I needed anything more robust I might workout how to replace all the dropped characters via RegEx. Anything obvious I should add? Feel free to edit, add your search and replace actions, and share here.
It takes something like this:
289 - New York - The Hard, Heavy & Hair Show with Pariah Burke
and formats it the way many blogs, CMSes, and web apps would, like this:
Replace %Variable%HHHShowTitleComplete% in the first action with your source text.
Replace the last action, the Display Text output, with where you'd like to output the results.
