What's with the symbols in titles?

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/5503... This title starts with a check mark.
Is this something the OP added or did Chow do it cuz it's special?
Are we into something new?
Many of the ampersands are in posts from before the site converted. The conversion didn't handle special characters elegantly.
If you do not edit the title, the all is well. If you edit it, then the ampersand gets converted. You just need to be sure to fix that during the edit.
This is something than be fixed because when that happened in Places it was fixed. I guess fixing it in chowhound topics isn't a big priority or a ticket has never been submitted because it isn't considered a problem despite being reported in the past.
I was doing search combinations using it and it is workable, but not very conducive to easy searching. I'm against it! Ba humbug! Next thing you know there will be colored letters, weird fonts and pictures!
