(Followup to T214797 in respect of a related issue.)

Index:The Return of Sherlock Holmes, edition published in 1905 by McClure, Phillips & Co., New York..djvu
When editing the Index , there is no warning given that "(" and ")" (And potentially other characters) create problems.
Requested feature: Implement an appropriate warning and indication of the problematic characters when an attempt is made to save the relevant Index: page.
A Related task would be an automated script/ search to identify existing Index pages which have parenthesized page numbers, such that they can be amended or replaced.
