Nerd Note

I have corrected a couple of longstanding problems on the 'blog today.

The Blogroll links now point to weblogs rather than their associated feeds. My blogroll is generated automatically from my subscriptions in Newsgator. I corrected the links by replacing '$xmlurl$' with '$link$' in the blogroll settings.

Pound signs are now displayed correctly in my Wishlist. I corrected this problem in rendering the JavaScript provided by Amazonbox by changing the encoding from Windows-1252 to Unicode UTF-8. This appears in the opening META tag of the HTML as

meta content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" equiv="Content-Type"

With Blogger, you change this setting in formatting under the Settings tab.
