Default Firetank Feed Manager UTF-8 double encoding?

Hi, just looking at our Google shoping feed which is the output from Firetank's feed manager and notice that a few of the descriptions are being rejected because of:


Quote:
The text associated with the item seems to have been UTF-8 encoded twice. Please ensure that your data is correct UTF-8 data.


Examples are:



“glideâ€


men’s



in check – and


which are present on then outputted text file used for the feed however, when I look at the descriptions in the MySQL table they are respectively stored as:


"glide"
men's
in check -and


so the quotes and the dash are being changed between the stored description and the outputted text file which makes the culprit the Feed Manager in my eyes...any way to stop this?


Thanks


Dan

Mysql/phpMyAdmin will often hide such encoding problems. I would try retyping those portions of the description.

Thanks Jon, you were right, couldn't see it. Re-writing those parts worked.
