To be exact;
blocks/block-modules.php
Where the heck is it pulling the &middot from?
I was customising the appearence of my block as I want to use a custom CSS driven menu appearence, got rid of all references to middot in the block-modules.php file, also removed all traces in mainfile.php and theme.php (I'm using Ravenice) and I still see the middot GRRR.
It doesn't seem to be theme related as it's there in several themes that I checked.

I have checked the page source code and it isn't showing up in the source either as the html entity or as a 'dot'. I even checked all image paths and CSS using FF Developer plug-in out of curiosity and nothing is showing there.

It doesn't make any difference whether I am logged in as a user, a user and admin, just an admin or not at all.

Here is some sample source
Code:


<div class="block">
    <div class="block_gradient">
      <div class="block_top"><div><h3>Modules</h3></div></div>
    </div>
    <div class="block_content">
       <div id="menu3">
<ul>
<li><a href="index.php" title="Home">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="modules.php?name=Advertising" title="Advertising">Advertising</a></li>
<li><a href="modules.php?name=AvantGo" title="AvantGo">AvantGo</a></li>
<li><a href="modules.php?name=CA_Messenger" title="CA Messenger">CA Messenger</a></li>
<li><a href="modules.php?name=Content" title="Content">Content</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
</div>
<div class="article_bot"><div>&nbsp;</div></div>
  </div>

I don't understand how this can be. Are you certain that you have the right block active. Sorry to ask that, but I just don't see how it would just add that entity in there. There is nothing re-writing to these.

Neither do I, which is why I'm a tad frustrated Wink
It's definitely the correct block as my custom menu produces a rollover image based on the use of the div id 'menu3' for each LI in the list - only they are being push out to the right due to the 'dot'.
Even though my button image doesn't have a 'dot' I have also used the FF Developer plugin to list image paths and outline images to rule out an 'image' problem.
I have even checked there is only one stylesheet being used and commented out all the CSS in it except for my menu style code - the rendered page goes nuts, as you would expect but the 'dot' s are still there.
Nothing in the menu style should cause it
Code:


#menu3 {
   width: 100%;
   border: 1px solid #ccc;
/*   margin: 10px; */
   }
#menu3 li a {
     height: 32px;
     height: 24px;
   text-decoration: none;
   }
#menu3 li a:link, #menu3 li a:visited {
   color: #888;
   display: block;
   background: url(../images/menu3.gif);
   padding: 8px 0 0 30px;
   }
#menu3 li a:hover, #menu3 li a:active {
   color: #283A50;
   background: url(../images/menu3.gif) 0 -32px;
   padding: 8px 0 0 30px;
   }

It's truly weird.

I should add that this is on my local box, a default install i.e. Shortlinks is off etc.

Does this also happen with the original block? Maybe its in a language file somewhere?

It's the original block but I have re-coded it so the menu displays the links inside LI tags and yes I checked the language file.
If I hard code the menu inside theme.php and before before the function blocks(l); I still get the same result.
It must be CSS related and maybe I missed it before because the CSS was cached or something.

Finally figured it out but kudos to M for pointing me in the right direction and providing the answer which I should have known (no coffee for a week as my punishment).
I was looking for something that was causing the behavior instead of looking for what was missing.

UL and LI will cause a default behavior of an un-ordered bulleted list. To stop this and fix the problem
Code:


#menublock ul {
list-style:none;
}


Funny how something so simple can make you look so stupid Smile
