Description: I noticed this first in the Author Contributions cookbook but PageExists($pagename) does not attempt to wiki-ize the pagename before using it. For example: $AuthorPage is stored in "Group/Full Name Of Author" syntax. using PageExists($AuthorPage) will fail because of this. Propse that PageExists be changed to parse $pagename to proper wiki standards, "Group.Page", no special characters (except hyphens), no spaces, etc.
