Non-ASCII characters in recipe titles show as ü

Any recipe title that contains non-ASCII characters, e.g. sueddeutsche.recipe or mesec.recipe, displays like Süddeutsche, both in my kindle and in the browser when I load it with ebook-convert. No matter how I encode the title, the result is still the same. This has always been like that. Could this be fixed please?

Am I the only one with this problem? Or is there anything I'm missing? Non-ASCII letters still show up as funny characters.

No. You are not alone. Check this.
A possible workaround is to customize the recipe. Assign the "cover_url" attribute of your recipe with the image URL of your choice. The cover image will then be the image specified in the URL rather than the default cover. For example,

Code:
class MyRecipe(BasicNewsRecipe):
    ....
    cover_url = 'http://www.somesite.com/image.jpg'
    ....
Alternatively, you may override the get_cover_url(.) method of the class.

Code:
class MPRecipe(BasicNewsRecipe):
    ....
   def get_cover_url(self):
        cover =  'http://www.somesite.com/image.jpg'
        br = BasicNewsRecipe.get_browser()
        try:
            br.open(cover)
        except:
            cover = None
        return cover
    ....
