Title tag will not allow italic

Currently the title field for an essay will not accept any tags (as far as I can tell), even though the help text indicates that it is supposed to. I tried using the <i> tag to italicize an book title but the tag just appeared as text in title. I think it would be a simple but useful design feature to be able to have italics in the title.

There is currently no way to create an em dash in drupal.

I ran into an issue recently where an author wanted some soft emphasis in her essay changed to hard emphasis with em dashes. This was throughout most of the essay, and I had to copy and paste em dashes from Microsoft Word.

addition to author page

On the author pages, please change "EBR Essays by X" to "Essays by X."

titles are no different from other text in footnotes on old essays

Footnotes are in italics now, so, on old essays, titles do not appear any different from the rest of the text in the footnotes. Is there a way to fix this automatically?

missing gloss

In the version of this essay -- http://www.electronicbookreview.com/thread/firstperson/generational -- on the new interface, Ben Underwood's gloss is missing; instead there are two versions of the Harrell gloss. This is especially problematic because the Harrell gloss refers to the Underwood gloss. I wonder if this speaks to some deeper problem? NOTE: BOTH GLOSSES ARE MISSING NOW.

Secondary Thread Icons

In the past, secondary-threads had their icon display slightly apart from the the main icon. I might be missing it, but it looks like there is no visual representation of secondary threads on the new website. If that is the case, I think it would be nice to get something equivalent to the old website display on the new website.

Boarders Around Thread Icons

On the main page, some of the icons blend together. I like the new, simple look of the icons, but I was thinking that a thin (1px) black border around each might help to visually distinguish them from one another.
