YQL encoding issues with &#XXXX; characters

When I try to use YQL to process an ISO-8859-1 page that contains &#XXXX; characters, they get transformed by YQL into UTF-8 WTF instead (i.e. U+FFFD).
Examples: ’ (U+2019) and – (U+2012) characters are transformed into (�). Any advice on how this can this be addressed?

Thank you,
Alexander

  • sorry, i take this back - they were actually windows-1252 characters inside iso-8859-1 content type :-( but when trying to save such page in Firefox, it automatically escaped such characters as &#XXXX;
