I have no problems with the "look" of it... It's just that google recognizes
the apostrophe (the normal one that gets typed into IE or w/e) as &#39;, and
not &#8217;, so it sorta screws that up if you have an apostrophe in your
blog title...

But, I suppose, I'll just make a plugin to fix it... I have some other
things I want to fix, anyways. :P
