Guardian Recipe - (Minor) Encoding Problem

Using the packaged Guardian recipe (which is great BTW) I've noticed that things like quotation marks and apostropes and other punctuation are often scrambled and replaced with other characters when viewed on my Kindle.

A quick look at the source of the Guardian RSS feeds show that they are encoded with "UTF-8". Looking through the recipe though I can't find any encoding info to check to see if it's correct...

Anyone have the same problem or is this just a Kindle thing?

Anyone have a fix/solution?

Try adding

encoding = 'utf-8'

to the recipe.
