    How do I get rid of the double arrows for the links in the sidebar?

    I tried to find the html symbol &araquo and nothing worked. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thx

    You will never find &raquo - if we are talking about the default theme :)

    But you can find in the style.css (of the Default, Kubrick based theme) somewhere in the
    "/* Begin Lists" section, around line 378 something like this:
    .entry ul li:before, #sidebar ul ul li:before {
    content: "0BB 020";

    where 00BB is the Unicode Character 'RIGHT-POINTING DOUBLE ANGLE QUOTATION MARK' . The other is the "space".

    Oh jeez. See what happens when you don't use the "default" yourself? Okay moshu - what's "0BB"? I know what the space designator is - but what's the other? [No - I KNOW it's the same as » from what you posted, but what and why 0BB?]

    I think that's the octal escape code for the double angle quote. I believe that CSS requires you use the octal escape code when specifying content attributes. Why use this and not some other more normal method? I have no idea.
