Characters with accents appear as question marks once uploaded

Hi all,

 

As the title suggests, in one of our Polish feeds certain characters appear as question marks once uploaded. The culprits we've identified are:

 

ż
ę
ł
ą

 

Any info on how we can overcome this? As when the question mark pops into the url, it will lead to a 404 page.

 

Many thanks,

 

Chris

You need to contact your web developer, plugin developer or application company to fix the issue. This issue is due to encoding issues in your data feed.

 

So contact the person who created the feed, to make sure it is UTF-8 and all characters are correctly encoded.

 

Hope it helps.
