Run the numbers.... in reverse!!!

Well this is a forum first! I know we've had some time out bugs, attachment bugs and even avatar bugs but I now have solid proof that this forum has a mind of its own (that or it's haunted  Shocked).
Ladies and Gents.. I present you with our very own plusnet forum doing a page COUNT DOWN!:

Yes you see that right.. page two is listed before page one!
Look at the first topic (about sugar in food) and then the one below about the BBC being cut... as you can see we normally go from one upwards but with the sugar topic something bitter is going on and we're counting backwards!

Re: Run the numbers.... in reverse!!!

I would think it has something to do with a dodgy character in the title which is munging up the HTML
If you look at the page source, everything is in the right order, but there is a &#8207 just after the title and before the /A
href="http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,124544.0/topicseen.html">Sugar in Food... The MILK with Cereals is a big culprit&#8207;</a> &#171; <a href="http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,124544.0/topicseen.html">1</a> <a href="http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,124544.16/topicseen.html">2</a> <a href="http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,124544.32/topicseen.html">3</a> &#187; in <a href="http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/board,1.0.html">Chit Chat</a></td>

That'll do it,  as Unicode Character 8207 (x200F) is the Right-To-Left mark,  and the browsers are honoring it!
