Reporting this because some of our users have mentioned this. I realize that the . is used for subwebs and such, but like I said, a few people have mentioned it.
1) Edit any twiki page, and type an non-existent wikiword with a dot someplace in the text, such as FooBar8
2) Save the changes.
3) Go to click on the ? appearing around the new topicname of "FooBar8.2", but in this case the ? isn't appearing at the end of "FooBar8.2" like you'd expect, it instead is appearing after the "8", changing the topicname to "FooBar8".
It'd be great if there was some sort of other feedback when the user first saved the page with the new topicname they wish to create, something like "we're sorry, topicname can not contain dots". What's happening is people are clicking on that question mark, creating the new page, and then are later on realizing the topicname isn't what they wanted.
