    includevia artists
    Hi David,

    I'm trying to use the <!--includevia artists--> which works for "single" named artists like "Usher" or "Prince" just fine. I simply save the include file as prince.html . But when naming the html for the first and last name it does not work. For example michaeljackson, michael+jackson, michael_jackson, even michael jackson.html does not work.

    what am I doing wrong?

    Use a - (dash) as the separator between words in filenames. So for "Michael Jackson", save the include file as:

    michael-jackson.html

    When AE converts a text string (e.g: "Michael Jackson") into a filename to look for, all non-alphanumerics (all characters other than: a to z, A to Z, 0 to 9) are converted to a dash character. Multiple dashes in a row (e.g.: "---") are converted to a single dash; and leading/trailing dash are removed. And the result is converted to all lowercase. So filenames are always lowercase, start with an alphanumeric (letter or number), and consist of alphanumerics and zero or more dashes.

    Thanks David!

    There's so much depth to this script...but I'm getting there.
