If a topic title contains quotes, usually the second " is displayed as "e when it's shown on the main forum list.

"The devil I'll bring you," answered Hagen. "I have enough to carry with my shield and breastplate; my helm is bright, the sword is in my hand, therefore I bring you naught."

My guess is that this is because the forum software cuts off the post title preview after x characters, and if that happens to be in the middle of an HTML special character, then you'll get only part of the code instead of the translated character. And quotation marks are the most common special character (represented in HTML as " ) so it's the one most commonly split this way.

Low-priority bug, but definitely a bug -- probably in the forum software package underlying LttD.
