    Several of the menu items in my site use &$153; to add the TM symbol to particular trademark text.
    When this text is displayed in the breadcrumbs the special character is not rendered as TM but the base code is displayed. The same HTML works fine in the RadPanel control.

    Is there another way for me to add the TM symbol to the Menu Text?

    Hello Rick,

    You should use &#153 as a menu label. You need to create a custom Breadcrumb control and decode the html text

    sample code

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using Telerik.Cms.Web.UI;
    using Telerik.Cms.Web;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    /// <summary>
    /// Summary description for BreadCrumbCustomControl
    /// </summary>
    public class BreadCrumbCustomControl : Breadcrumb
        public BreadCrumbCustomControl()
        protected override void InitializeItem(System.Web.UI.WebControls.SiteMapNodeItem item)
            if (item.ItemType != SiteMapNodeItemType.Root)
                var i = item.SiteMapNode;
                CmsSiteMapNode node = i as CmsSiteMapNode;
                if (node != null)
                    string nt = node.Title;
                    if (nt == "™")// RadEditor will encode this and convert the value to tm
                        item.Visible = false;
                        // crate a literal ot hyperlink control and decode the node Title.

    All the best,
