in reply to 1 vs "1"

On another note, whenever I preview this, I have to re-add the "1" in the title, as it disappears from the input box. Is this a bug?

Yes. The resulting html is:
<INPUT TYPE="text" name="node" value="1 vs "1"">
The quote before the second 1 ends the value property. In other cases quotes get replaced with &quot; which displays it correctly in the textbox so it shouldn't be too difficult to fix this.
