What the € was that?

No, not Mark’s post from earlier, but the random Euro signs which have appear across LibDemBlogs today.
There seems to be a character set issue between my server and everyone’s RSS feeds, so when people used fancy curly quotes they just appeared as garbage.

The true problem will need to be fixed, however for the time being, I’ve just got a find and replace script instead.

  1. Magpie RSS is now throwing errors when it tries to parse the feed:
    MagpieRSS: Failed to parse RSS file. (not well-formed (invalid token) at line 248, column 115)

    Which seems to be in Peter Black’s blog –

    specifically: �5,000

    Not sure if that’s anything to do with this change.

    I suppose I should also look into whether my RSS reader has an upgrade as well…
