Summary0000050: DB Entries contain invalid character codes
DescriptionSome DB entries contain non-html encoded special characters which are not displayed correctly.
Possible solution: run a script over all DB entries which converts such characters into their html encoded counterparts.

Old Req:
While browsing with FireFox the anime Turn A (and some others) the page encoding used in AniDB (iso-8859-1) shows some strange characters for episodes and description. This isn't only related to FireFox; the same happens with IE and Opera. Shouldn't the encoding be changed to UTF-8 or some sort of escaping for the wrong characters be made?

Link to anime:
Additional InformationProblem: the counterpart for some characters may be undefined because it can no longer be determined which encoding was used when they were entered.
TagsNo tags attached.

It seems I misunderstood the problem. The problem is a wrong character that seems to have been left from some old encoding style. Couldn't this be fixed by a process over the database?

yes, and this in ONTODO, however, it doesn't have a high priority so far.

btw. if you change this request accordingly I'll be happy to change it's state to ONTODO too :P

The problem is I don't have the rights to change it :(

I must state that the most common mistake is the one visible in Turn-A Gundam episodes about the ' (apostrophe).

I've often submitted corrections about those apostrophes.
You could just make creq for each episode and it will be solved.
