Hi Skunk, i have ran into a problem regarding my RSS feed's font.

I noticed that symbols don't appear in the feed or they appear as boxes.

For example the name of the feed is "Fire & Ice" (with an ampersand symbol) and the ampersand is just blank, or one of the titles reads "Danis won't get start tonight" and the apostrophe shows up as a box.

Is there anyway to replace the font with a different one, or to add in an option to select different fonts for the feed?

it is too bad too because I love the font used.

Thanks for the link.

Unfortunately, none of those fonts have the " or ' characters since in my feed those characters either don't show up at all, or show up as a box.

Sorry, been away for a bit and only now getting the chance to catch up.

Have you tried using the Arial font option?
