Yahoo Dropped Arrows (►) From Results

A thread over at DigitalPoint notes that Yahoo! has dropped arrows (►) from its search results page. The arrow is used by some search engine wary SEOs to draw more attention to their listing over the other search engine real estate listings. Yahoo! said no more to this and removed it. Google has removed the unicode characters over a year ago, Yahoo! follows suit., when will MSN?

Update: I am informed that this is not always the case at Yahoo!. "Looks like Yahoo may only be dropping the arrow if the first character of the title is the arrow." For example see; Yahoo! Search results for longest car, it should look like: yahoo-unicode-arrows.gif
