    Default character in rss feeds for rsspausescroller?

    hey guys. i added this script to my web site. i like the functionality, except the only problem is parts of my rss feed get characters like

    i believe this is an encoding issue but can't seem to resove it. i notice there is some code in the lastRSS.php file for encoding i'm not having much luck.

    the rss feed i'm trying to obtain is: http://www.cnbc.com/id/17588138/device/rss/rss.xml

    the encoding on my web page is: charset=utf-8 but i've also tried harset=iso-8859-1

    both of which still give me characters like that above.

    anyone have any idea?

    thanks in advance.

    I know this is an old thread but it came up on a Google search while I was looking for a similar solution for another RSS character fix.

    I offer this very delayed reply in the hope that it might help others.

    On this particular script you can change the encoding in the "bridge.php" file from "ISO-8859-1" to "UTF-8", in this line here;
    Code:
    echo "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"ISO-8859-1\"?>\n<rss version=\"2.0\">\n<channel>\n";
