    Issue with Spanish fonts in the descriptions of RNE podcasts

    I am having an issue with the Spanish fonts in the short descriptions of Radio Nacional de España podcasts (for example Nómadas, La historia de cada día, Futuro abierto) . Instead of any letter with the accent appears the letter plus "acute;", for example, for "á" appears "á".
    Additionally, after tapping such a podcast, the full description is not shown.
    Interestingly enough, this happens for RNE podcasts only, all other Spanish podcasts that I use seems fine. Could you look into it?
    I use beta 4.2.9 but had the same issue for previous version.

    What's the URL of the affected feed? If other Spanish language feeds are affected, it's most likely something to do with the feed itself.

    May be an issue isolated to Radio Nacional de España, however the descriptions for the same podcasts in Media Monkey for PC are being shown correctly.
    I am not an expert, but seems like Media Monkey knows how to deal with that.

    Here are the links:

    If I paste those links into a browser, I just get search results, not a podcast feed. Are those the exact URLs that you see when you edit the feed in BeyondPod? (It's the very first field you see.)

    The spec for RSS feeds is notoriously loose, so it's easy to "forget" to allow for every eventuality (such as a feed using single quotes when 99.9% of feeds use double quotes).

    Thanks Winger. It looks at though that particular publisher uses a rather archaic way of encoding accented characters, which we're not picking up correctly. We'll see what we can do.

    This should be fixed in beta version 4.2.10, which you can download from our beta web page (it hasn't been submitted to the Play Store beta channel).
