Hi

I have set up site navigation using the sitemap xml files and all is well... except for 1 tiny detail.

I am trying to get the trademark symbol (&#0153;) to show on one of the navigation buttons.  I have entered the button title text followed by the &#0153; character code in the title section of a <sitemapnode>.  However the symbol is not appearing - only a square box.

Anyone know whats going on?

use one of these instead of yours

trademark = &#8482;
registered trademark = &#174;
service mark = &#8480 =
copyright = &#169;
sound recording copyright = &#8471;

Yes, it's bacause your sitemap is probably encoded in utf-8, and support for 127-159 varies from characterset to characterset.

Windows-1252 and will cause you problems in almost any other character set and should never be used in HTML. You should use the Unicode value, that is &#8482; in decimal notation.
