The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Imagination Technologies's MIPS group, in the past of other companies such as Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

<angle brackets in titles confuses blogger>

If you put angle brackets in the title of a blogger post, like this:
<angle brackets in titles confuses blogger>
blogger gets confused and decides that it is an untitled post - whereas if there is truly bno title, blogger guesses from the first line.

Not clear that this is a bug, but certainly a feature of questionable merit.

Yet another quotification issue.

Escape it: something like

‹Your title here›

Obviously I already figured that out, by putting < = & lt ; in my post title.

The more worrying thing is that quotification issues like this often point the way to a security hole.
