I don't know about the rest of y'all, but the Forums are now bent on making a liar out of me by not converting α and ω into decimal entities. In fact the 5.2.2 digression was opportune because it reminds me that α and ω --unlike the characters I had originally planned to use-- have named HTML entities. Relevant? Only the Forums' head honcho can tell.
But the pound signs in my post come through as their three respective entities. (If this were php/bb2, the decimal one would turn back into £.)
