  • Is there a way to provide an RSS feed in ISO-8859-1, instead of UTF-8?

    I’ve looked and can’t find any answers on this.

  • I think the simple answer (as far as I know) is not without changing the encoding of your site to ISO-8859-1 as well. I think the feeds’ encoding reflects the sites’ encoding. I know there would be ways to change the encoding with some PHP, so if you’re intent on having only the feed as ISO-8859-1 you might want to either search such a script out or give a go at making one yourself. You could also change the encoding of your site, but that’s not necessarily recommended. Why would you want to have it as something other than UTF anyway?

    Good luck,

    I agree that UTF-8 is the way to go on websites. But, the rest of the world is either not convinced, or does not care.

    My problem is that I have one category feed designed specifically to be integrated into other people’s websites. I have found that most others are using the ISO-8859-1 charset, and my display in UTF-8 shows up with unintelligible characters.

    I provide a php code line for inclusion of my feed into thier websites. So, I could incorporte a translation script, if necessary.

    Any suggestions/recommendations on available scripts?
