    Hi,

    When pressing the 'Like' button to share a post from my WP blog on FB, special charachters like 'åäö' end up as very strange signs instead.

    När allt lugnat ner sig efter bröllopet så kände jag att det var dags för ett längre karppass så att jag fick vila upp mig lite.

    I'm having the same problem for characters as simple quote marks.

    I solved this by changing WP theme. I was using an old theme, about 2½ yrs old, that obviously did not know how to handle OG.

    Once I changed to a newer theme and cleaned everything up, I manually added two OG lines to the header that were missing according to the Facebbok debugger, after a while it all now works perfectly.
