    Default Weird characters in the display of rss feed

    1) Script Title: RSS display boxes

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...ybox/index.htm

    3) Describe problem:

    When pulling google rss feeds with this script, sometimes I get weird characters in the display.

    What do I need to change so it displays the characters correctly?

    Great script BTW

    I see that too sometimes with, say, the feed for NYTimes.com. I haven't had time to investigate except to say the problem is happening on Simplepie's side (the server side script used by this script). When I tried displaying the feed directly using Simplepie, the strange characters remain.

    You'll want to look at Simplepie's manual, especially the part dealing with encoding.
