Accented characters may display improperly in feeds-by-email

Monday, January 26, 2009 | 5:35 PM


We have discovered an issue that prevents emails delivered from Google-hosted feeds from always using UTF-8 encoding, which is usually the safest choice for ensuring the text displays correctly in its intended language. Currently, this means certain accented characters, like à, è, ú, and the like may display with garbled codes in some email clients.

A fix to ensure UTF-8 encoding is used throughout is in the works and will be deployed shortly. No changes in your account or feed settings are required.
