    Hi is there a way to enter the trademark symbol (™) in the title field of a news item?

    Hello Devin,

    It is possible, but you have to override NewsView control and its SetItemMetadata method, because title could be encoded in the backend. Another option is creating a custom metakey and encode it, decode it properly so that the NewsView will accept the correct value

    here is  a sample code

    protected override void SetItemMetadata(Control itemContainer, IContent contentItem)
          base.SetItemMetadata(itemContainer, contentItem);
          var title =   contentItem.GetMetaData("Title").ToString();
          if (title.Contains("trade"))
              var s = "™";
              var cntr =  itemContainer.FindControl("Title") as Literal;
              if (cntr != null)
                  cntr.Text = s;

    If you do not want to override the control you can make modifications through its external template by subscribing for repeater_ItemDataBound event and there you can access the title in the same way as I show you above.
