in reply to Dingbats in node titles?

The title modifications don't bother me too much, but I do offer an alternate solution. Allow each user on user settings to have a special "pre-title" field which with they can put their pre-title bits. Then, also add a setting "Node pre-titles" with options of "On", "On, ASCII-stripped" and "Off". The second option would convert any non ASCII character to a space or similar. Then, when nodes are collected, the titles are dynamically modified to include those pre-titles or modified versions of them, or none at all, which would appear to satisfy most of the user's comments on this issue.

    Aren't there enough Dingbats on this page already? No, seriosly, I think dingbats in titles would just give people an opertunity to make them unreadable, unless you're posting code in the title (which is a bad idea), the dingbats should not be alowed. If they do have their place, it's in the obfu section
