Mystery ? Del.icio.us Warning

I just noticed that WordPress defaults to using a right-angle quote (the raquo; entity) as the separator, which seems to be the cause of all those broken del.icio.us links that say del.icio.us warning: non-utf8 string! (sorry)

Geeky tech notes follow:

The WordPress support forum directed me to this page. I modified the <head><title> part of my template from:

<title>&lt;?php bloginfo('name'); ?&gt;&lt;?php wp_title(); ?&gt;</title>

to:

<title>&lt;?php bloginfo('name'); ?&gt;&lt;?php wp_title(' : '); ?&gt;</title>

Yay! It’s fixed! Too bad I didn’t catch this until after getting linked from a neat site today.
