Looks fine here. Are you sure you are using something that can handle Unicode UTF-8 properly?

The data I posted came straight out of the XML file on my PC. My TF5000PVRt displays it that way as well.
I just looked and part two tonight is also showing up with the wrong title.

I guess I should have been a little bit less obtuse in my reply.

If you set the character encoding to UTF-8 (instead of ISO-8859-1) on the text editor you use to view the XML on the PC, everything will look just fine. Same applies to this web page, it looks fine with UTF-8, however there are funny characters if I view with other character encodings.

As far as the Toppy is concerned, that may be an issue that only Topfield can resolve. There is no documentation available from Topfield that would explain how to handle various text encodings. Perhaps the Toppy can not handle extended character sets at all?
