    gets changed to:

    What do you have set as the encoding under the Settings / Reading section of the admin? I am set to utf-8 and don’t have a problem like this.

    Hi,

    I have had UTF-8 and still have it.

    I had the same problem. WordPress converts given characters like ö ä ü ß to the proper codings, so the characters look fine within the blog. I had the problem using Link Library, that the plugin didn’t convert it, so within the Library outputs appeared strange phrases. I solved the problem to convert these special characters within the Links section by myself – so the word “Beiträge” is now Beitr & a u m l ; ge (of course without spaces)….

    Would that not be an option in a future release?

    Could you show me a link of a web page where this happens? I am unable to reproduce this on my web site. Perhaps this is a theme-related issue.

    Sorry, I can’t show you a sample cause I “fixed” the problem as I described above.
    Just try to add a link and put (copy paste) a description for the link like:

    Beiträge außer geölte Überreste

    Save the link with this description, then go to Link Library at the blog and you will see that it shows strange characters where is the ä, ß, ö and Ü …

    It happend within 2 different Themes, so I guess it has nothing to do with the Theme – since within posts and pages of the Theme this problem never showed up…
