utility converting string to a safe format


String::Dirify converts a string (possibly containing high ASCII characters, and even HTML) into another, lower-cased, string which can be used as a directory name or URL.

The algorithm is as follows:
 * Each high ASCII character is replaced by its normal equivalent
 * The string is converted to lower case
 * Any HTML (including HTML entities) in the string is removed
 * Any characters which are not (Perl) words, spaces or hyphens, are removed
 * Runs of spaces are converted to the separator character
