@BrianKatz It's something I don't get, either. EVERYTHING sent from my site to GA is URL encoded (titles, screen resolutions, etc). Why aren't screen resolutions reported as 1024%20x%20768? Even the depreciated user defined variables are reported URL decoded. The fact that the custom variables were heavily promoted and then left ignored is puzzling to a lot of us.
(BTW -- Love the site. My job has realy veered away from analytics, but your UX articles are simply top notch)
