If there is an apostrophe, it changes to a question
mark when is processed by MagpieRSS. For example, it
will switch "it's" to "it?s". The RSS feed is valid.
I am using WordPress v1.5 to make the RSS feed, and
everything shows up in the RSS feed correctly. I am
also using MagpieRSS v0.71.1. I tried googling for
help, and searching this site, but I couln't find any
solutions.

    This is how I worked around the problem:

    define('MAGPIE_OUTPUT_ENCODING', 'UTF-8');

    $content = ereg_replace("</br>","",$content);
    $content = ereg_replace("’","&rsquo;",$content);
    $content = ereg_replace("‘","&lsquo;",$content);
    $content = ereg_replace("“","&ldquo;",$content);
    $content = ereg_replace("…","&hellip;",$content);
    $content = ereg_replace("","&rdquo;",$content);
    $content = ereg_replace("<br >","<br>",$content);

    Forgive my ignorance, but where would this code be placed?
    Here's the code I have on my index.php page:

    <?php
    require_once('magpierss/rss_fetch.inc');
    require_once('magpierss/rss_utils.inc');
    $date_format = "F d, Y h:i:s a";
    $rss =
    fetch_rss('http://www.sharethegift.ca/wordpress/?feed=rss2');
    $items = array_slice($rss->items, 0, 3);
    foreach ($rss->items as $item) {
    $href = $item['link'];
    $title = $item['title'];
    $date = $item['pubdate'];
    $created = date($date_format, $item['date']);
    $pubdate = date("F d, Y g:i a",
    strtotime($date)+7200);
    $desc = $item['description'];
    echo "<p><a href=$href><b>$title</b></a><br
    />$pubdate</p>";
    }
    ?>

    Thanks.

    Where does the code for the workaround go? Which file and line?
