    International people come and leave comments on my site in say, Spanish or Japanese, and my feeds stop working:

    http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=feed%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Felliottback.com%2Fwp%2Fcomments%2Ffeed%2F

    ... 的最新??文 ...

    Those ?? are invalid characters. Why does this happen, and how can it be prevented?

    The problem seems to be related to the "Feeds should not be served with the "text/html; charset="utf-8"" media type" error, which is also echoed in your main feed:

    http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Felliottback.com%2Fwp%2Ffeed%2F

    Perhaps a plugin is interfering?

    If that isn't the case, replacing the feed files may help. Replacing the Header Template is also worth a shot.
