  • Or
    Character encoding
    Add “AddDefaultCharset utf-8” to your .htaccess

    Yes, that is also a possibility, if everything else is utf-8 on the site. But my solution makes it fail safe, I think. I’ll stick to it anyway. 🙂

    The only reason that error comes up (the error is not critical, the feed is still valid, and your feed can be read by all post-year-2000 RSS readers) is because one(or more) of your entries is(are) encoded in US-ASCII. The issue will resolve itself as soon as the offending post(s) is(are) no longer on the RSS feed.

    I think Podz and W3 are right, actually. The server defaults to US-ASCII and will send a header saying the feed is in US-ASCII unless PHP or .htaccess says utf-8. I have not looked through all the WP code, but I do not think it has to do with any posts being in other encoding. My WP installation has been running on utf-8 from day 1 and there should be no posts in other encodings.

    Well, I’m just saying so because it has happened on all of my blogs at least once.
