Hi, guys...what does the collective say about whether it is proper or
not to put cgaracters such as TM in web page titles.

I'm against it and prefer to put the special character on the first
instance of the term in the body, but I have some people here who are
taking "first instance" literally.

I'm without my style guide books...does MMoS or Chicago give an
opinion on this? I did a quick search but didn't find anything
