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
