There is a question about the movie P'tit Quinquin: Who is the murderer in p'tit quinquin or li'l quinquin?

I wanted to add the appropriate tag, but I'm not sure whether it should be ptit-quinquin or p-tit-quinquin.

Is there any guidance WRT how titles featuring such special characters should be handled?

    @AnkitSharma that's fighting symptoms. What if the english title has special characters? – JAD May 29 '18 at 8:29
  • Can't put an apostrophe in tags? Why not? Fix that and you win the entire war, not just this battle. – Mazura Jun 12 '18 at 0:52
  • Meh, what next? Exclamation marks, colons and question marks? The lack of punctuation support in tags also has the advantage of reducing ambiguity in tagging and the danger of duplicate tags. Tags will always be just an abstraction/approximation of the actual title and their simplicity comes with a certain structural beauty. – Napoleon Wilson Jun 13 '18 at 11:17
  • Exclamation marks? Yes. E.g., Happy! – Mazura Jun 15 '18 at 0:06

In this case, p'tit is an abbrev of petit. It seems weird to replace the apostrophe with a space, because that suggests they are two words.

As such, I would suggest going with .

The same would apply to the title of the related English show: Li'l Quinquin. Here I would suggest .
