Alerts feature response string

I love the "alerts" feature. In Europe your warnings coming from http://meteoalarm.eu. That works as expected.

Unfortunately there are some problems with german umlauts, they look strange. In addition sometimes single characters are completely missing.

The missing characters are in the XML return string and on your official website for the location.

Example from http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/f...

--> aktive Warnung: Extreme low temperature Im Verlauf der zweiten Nachthälfte örtlich leichter rost bis -1 Grad möglich.

From the XML return string:

<![CDATA[Extreme low temperature Im Verlauf der zweiten Nachthälfte örtlich leichter
rost bis -1 Grad möglich.]]>

Instead of "leichter rost" it should read "leichter Frost". On the webpage the umlauts are OK.

Thanks, Mike

Here I have another exmample of missing characters. I attached a screenshot from the orginal wunderground website from http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/f...



So the web site has the same missing characters like the return string in the API.

Allow me one question: are you guys from Wunderground interested in reporting problem/errors?

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to be harsh or unfriendly, but I am curious, because I didn't get any response so far.

There is still a problem with missing characters from warning messages from meteoalarm.eu (in the XML return string and on your official weather websites).

Thanks, Mike

This is an image of the iOS Weather App "Today", which uses your data.

I guess it is an UTF-8 Error?

It is and it's been known for over a year.
