There are some weird symbols and code showing in my sidebar comments. I'm guessing the &# is code referring to comment number so-and-so. But the symbol showing in some other comments looks like a dark vertical slab with a white dot in the middle; I've never seen anything like it. It seems to be happening only with the newest comments, and it shows with both IE7 and Firefox.
My URL is http://windwhistle.wordpress.com. I'm currently using the Connections theme, but recently have been experimenting with others, including White as Milk, Regulus (yes, I clicked the button to clear its formatting), and MistyLook. I'm guessing all the switching around messed up something. I've tried changing settings, removing and reinstalling the Comments widget, clearing my caches. Weird. Any suggestions?
