Certain characters, such as the cent symbol (¢) create slashes after conversion to ascii (c/) and aren't caught by the current slash scrubbing #58

Added an additional pass to the to_url function to strip slashes after the to_ascii method has run but before whitespace is collapsed. Also added a special case to convert things like 50¢ to "50 cents"/"50-cents".

We've been using the gem in certain projects and we had to fix this problem locally. Would love to have it merged.
Thank you,
