    Posted: April 02 2023 at 01:50
I am noticing many issues with non-ASCII characters not displaying correctly in any of this website RSS feeds.
After digging further, I see that the RSS feed is encoded ISO-8859-1 and thus many accented characters (and characters outside of Latin alphabet) get replaced by a � glyph making the entry in the feed extremely hard to read.
Would it be possible to provide the RSS feeds with proper UTF-8 encoding, considering this is a rather easy and quick fix?
For reference, it should be just matter of changing the encoding at XML level to be UTF-8 as per the examples on XML RSS (

Thanks for the consideration.
