'?' characters in feed name

Okay, according to Doggcatcher FAQ, characters not supported by the built-in XML parser in Android are replaced with '?'. Really? How come I see those characters in Google Listen application? We're not talking about weird characters but standard French accented letters such as é,à,è ... Do you see the characters here? Please fix.

International char

The way I understand listen to work is that it parses the feeds on their servers. What makes it to the devices is not directly from the publishers. So they may be scrubbing up the xml on the server side. I've done that quite a bit in DC but I might have missed some.

Can you post the feed url and I'll check it out.

Yep, I see what you're talking about.
