In Movable Type, how do you jigger it so the URLs of the individual entries display the title of the piece, as opposed to the entry number?

Dig around the Weblog Config > Archive Files menu. When you see < $mtentryid$> in the Individual Archives set, replace it with < $mtentrytitle dirify="1" $>.

On preview: Make sure the capitalization is correct, there seems to be some auto-lower-casing thingy going on. Should be MTEntryID and MTEntryTitle.

Go to Weblog Config | Archive Files. Make sure "Individual" under "Archive Types" is checked. In the corresponding text field, put <$MTArchiveDate format="%Y/%m/%d/"$><$MTEntryTitle dirify="1"$>

(Actually the MTArchiveDate tag isn't strictly necessary, but it's good practice to use date-separated archive files so entries with the same title don't overwrite each other by mistake.)
