    sep means separator f.e. - | > etc. This is defined in your <title> on header.php

    Depend of your posts and content. For me good works title - category - site-name. But again will say depend from what type of content you have and how long are your post titles.

    As I see your site it would be quite good title | Sitename.
    But first go to your header.php and change <title>whatever is here</title> in <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    You have your sitename twice and i thing this is the reason.

    I thnk the previous poster was saying that all the code from <title> to </title> which in your header.php has lots of echo statements and 'if' statements should be changed to be just this <title><?php wp_title(''); ?></title>

    Make a backup of the file before editing it so you cna restore it if necessary.

    You can make the template anything you like - Personally I'd include the separator tag eg %%title%% %%sep%% %%sitename%%
