Just for posterity at this point, 'Þ' (lowercase 'þ') is the glyph known as thorn. It was used in Old Norse, Old English and survives today in Icelandic. It comes to us by way of the runic alphabet. Thorn and the closely related eth ('Ð' / 'ð') are both rendered as 'th' in modern English, but can still be differentiated between the words "ether" and "either"; the former being the same as thorn and the latter eth. The more you know, or something.
I'm one of the Woot devs. I totally worked on that thing you love about Woot, but that other thing that's broken, that was someone else.
