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.

It's not what you know, but knowing how to find it if you don't know that's important
