Database name hyphens

Steps to reproduce:
1. Navigate upto the 'Connect to database' page.
2. Input invalid 'Database name'. (e.g. my_wiki#)
3. Click on the 'Continue' button.
4. Click on the 'help' field hint for the 'Database name'.
5. Compare the warning message and the help field hint.

Note : Same behavior for 'Database table prefix'.  (refer the screenshots)

Actual results:
