A good search-engine optimized permalink is /%post_id%/%postname% resulting in something like yoursite.com/123/this-is-my-post. The bots like it because it gives a unique ID number and the post name in full.

Batman - you're a star! I took the precaution backed up the site first. Read the link about permalinks. A 1 second click and it works without any problems. Thanks very much.
