You get this same problem with many (all?) blogs from the blog-platform joueb.com (http://joueb.com/texts/active_sites.shtml) For example : http://-abyskaya-.joueb.com/index.rdf It seems the 8bit character is converted to Unicode, but the two bytes of the Unicode are displayed as two 8bit characters. The two cases have in common that they use the .rdf format and encoding="iso-8859-1". There is the same problem with the initial title of the blog, retreaved when you add it.
