I am working to create/update products using the Shopify API. In the documentation on Shopify, I see that the Handle field can only contain alpha numerics and dashes with no symbols or special characters.
However, I have seen URLs (example below) where a Handle contain a symbol (®) that I would expect to be rejected or replaced.
Can someone confirm what the allowable values are for the Handle field and if the API enforces those rules on the inbound data?

This is an accepted solution.
That's the ® Registered Copyright character

If you need to know if some character is converted or not you need to test the handles before an after product creation and flag any differences.
