Accent problem doesnt affect RSS

June 13th, 2002

It seems the accent problem doesn’t affect RSS or the aggregator – the problem is that IE and Mozilla both choke on accented characters in the description element when trying to render the XML in the browser, even if I replace them with their equivalent html entities.

  1. Have you tried modifying the XML feed so that it includes encoding information? For example:

    <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”iso-8859-1″ ?>

    instead of

    <?xml version=”1.0″?>
