3) Describe problem: One of the feeds I'm using has an occasional non-breaking space ( ), but on my page it is appearing as an inverted exclamation mark. Any ideas?

It could be complicated. Or just a matter of the character encoding on your page, which should probably be UTF-8. Make sure you have:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

in the proper place (immediately after the opening <head> tag) as the only character encoding meta tag on your page and that your server isn't overriding it for any reason.

If you have any question about that last bit (server override) or anything else with this, post a link to your page, I can tell whether or not it's being overridden and/or if you have set the meta tag properly or not.

However, as this is a hosted (by Google) API, there might not be anything you can do about it other than informing Google and the source of the feed of the problem. First make sure of the character encoding (as outlined above) on your end though.
