Wrong conversion of degree and ordinal symbol

I've noticed a little issue with last release (0.8.63), when running recipes from sites which use the ISO-8859-1 charset. Both degree and masculine ordinal symbol (° - 0xb0 and º - 0xba) are converted to "o".

No big deal, but they were correctly translated before IIRC.

Fast as ever, Kovid BTW, I was mistaken at the OP. The problem only happened with the ordinal symbol, degrees were OK. I was mislead by an article with many temperature forecasts which was using the ordinal symbol instead of degrees. This is a common mistake in Spanish media as the default keyboard has the ordinal but not degree, so I guess it's easier to type. And they're virtually indistinguishable in most fonts. In handwritten form I've always seen the "o" underscored, but don't know why most fonts omit this.

I've just noticed wrong conversion in the "preview" of periodical ebooks (see attached image). This only happens in such preview (don't know the name, but is the default when you open a new periodical ebook and in the Kindle Touch is symbolized by a 2x2 grid icon).

As the article text is fine this is almost a non-issue, but maybe you want to have a look for the shake of perfection.

Yep, is hot here
