I think if we are going to get caught up on symbols then the interpunct 
[1] would be the best divider.

I do think having WPD in it is the best option since we are targeting 
that for searches.  The second option I like the best, but it has Web 
Platform Docs in parentheses.  Does this actually help SEO at all at 
this point or is the title just getting extra stuff added in?
