https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Updating+articles+for+Firefox+35 should be version 3.5 not 35 (title and url)

Hey Tom -- I think the reason for that is because periods aren't supported (which is a stupid limitation, yes). Chris, could you verify this?

Yup. Putting a decimal in the article title adds one to the URL, and thus breaks the link. We have a bug open for warning users when trying to create articles with bad characters. See bug 465029.

thanks for clearing that up :)
I think this would be a great time to suggest an option to make an alias title.

For example, creating a KB article with title "Updating articles for Firefox 3.5" would generate the article url:

https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Updating+articles+for+Firefox+35

But the header title would still show "Updating articles for Firefox 3.5" .

What do you think?
