Sanitized Name for Notes Created by Hook

Is it possible to have special characters, such as spaces, quotes, pipes, and colons automatically replaced, upon the creation of hook notes, with “safe” alternatives, such as a hyphen or underscore? It’s not uncommon that a webpage contains said special characters in its title which the resulting hook note will inherit, making it unreliable to process in a terminal environment (and many GUI software). I think this issue deserves attention because it to some extent undermines the robustness that Hook strive to maintain.

Hook is a remarkably customizable app. Its Notes’ New Item script is quite customizable in Hook Pro. Per:
Scripts Tab – Hook . If anyone wants to contribute a New Item script for Notes, then others could borrow or adapt it.
