I was trying to retrieve an italian feed which contains
accented letters and RSS Bandit return the following
error: "Invalid character in specified coding".
The error does not appear if the accented character is
replaced with non accented one.

    What is the feed Url? Do you reported the issue also to the
    feed publisher? Encoding issues are mostly an issue at the
    owner/publisher side...

    This is the URL:

    http://forum.zipgenius.it/ssi.php?
    a=out&f=29&show=5&type=rss

    but now it works. There were problems when this feed
    contained special characters like in word "men". They have
    been substituted with non special (like "menu") and it seems
    to be ok.

    However, it doesn't seem regular for RSS Bandit not to be
    able to manage those characters. Don't you think so?

    This kind of errors (encosing) are XML errors, not Bandit
    errors. Mean: invalid encoded characters leads to invalid XML
    (file). That you can validate through the feed validator (see
    context menu at a feed).
