Some Unicode characters rendered as question marks

description

The default SharePoint RSS seems to be UTF-8. I was having problems with some characters being rendered as question marks instead the correct character. I made a couple changes in to get this to work right for us.
 
RSSRenders.cs:
string rssText = System.Text.UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetString(rssBytes); //System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(rssBytes);
 
OOTBXSLT.xlst
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

Where is this RSSRenders.cs file you mention? It's not listed here in the sourcecode on CodePlex? We're having similar problem with French accent characters showing up as question marks. Thanks.
