Is there any problem or drawback if i allow end users to enter "dash" and "Brackets" inside the wiki pages URLs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am starting a new Enterprise wiki site collection inside my sharepoint enterprise server 2013, and currently i am building a guidelines document which will define the procedure for creating new wiki pages by our end users. so i define the following format for the wiki pages name/url:-
    "Page Topic" - "Customer Name" ("Type").aspx

    so the wiki pages urls will look as follow:-

    1. "Telephone List - CustomerA (Information).aspx"
    2. "Setup a new PC - CustomerB (Technical).aspx"

    now sharepoint will allow me to define these characters without any problem. but since i will inform our end users to follow this naming standards when creating new wiki pages, so i want to know if using special characters such as "dash" and "Brackets" is a valid appraoch or it will create some problems?, mainly inside these areas :-

    1. Search & search results
    2. when building links between wiki pages?

    Can anyone adivce on this please?
