Seen under Mac 10.6.8

  • Google Chrome 15.0.874.121
  • Safari Version 5.0.5 (6533.21.1)

A similar problem occurs in the Accounts tab of the [user page] 3. It occurs on both Chromium and Firefox, both at the latest versions.

It looks like SE should simply use Unicode instead of HTML-entities, which then get wrongly escaped somewhere.

  • A similar bug was reported (and resolved) at the start of private beta. Nov 21, 2011 at 1:54
  • This also appears in the site list in the multicollider, and on the account tabs on SO and MSO. Nov 21, 2011 at 2:13
