FYI: The actual implementation differs from the original ticket in two minor ways:

  • Uses American English spelling of "categorized" (instead of "categorised")
  • Retains the use of vertical bar | as the title parts separator and not a dash -

In #1105 it was decided to use &mdash; as the separator between page title parts. However, in #3539, the separator was changed to &#124; (the vertical bar) though I don't see in that ticket or its comments where that particular change was requested or justified (it may be within the private Google Doc that was linked, but I can't see its contents). So right now the vertical bar is the standardized separator. Please open a new ticket if this should be changed since it would be a separate and wider-ranging effort than just this one instance and would be undoing deliberate changes made for #3539.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
