Accent marks on thumbnail pages not displaying...

On my product page I have products with accent marks:

Bun Grád
Tús Grád
Meán Grád
Ard Grád
Craobh Grád

These look fine on all pages in CP and CPSHOP, EXCEPT the product thumbnail grid on the Product Thumbnail page.  Here they come out like this:

Bun Grád Tús Grád Meán Grád Ard Grád Craobh Grád A grading

Not only are the words "wonky", but they are not on seperate lines as they are in CP.

I have checked the charset in the meta tags for both working/non-working pages and they match.  

Same issue on IE or Firefox.

I am using the standard product thumbnail grid that was delivered from cpshop.

It appears that cpshop is having trouble translating those words, but I can't figure out what to do to fix it.

Here is the working page in CP:

Here is the same page in cpshop: http://www.hiddenshamrock.net/index.cgi/irishdance.hiddenshamrock.6971639+what-level-are-you.html

Thoughts?  Marty?  Anyone?

Carriage returns aren't supposed to be rendered in shop teasers at CP -- which is why cpshop is "fixing" them.

As for the bad characters, I've tried to find the source, but all I've been able to surmise is that perl does some funky stuff with extended-ASCII characters when pulling down data from other servers.

As a simple fix, you might try doing conversion using index.cgi.images:

Marty,

That solved it!

Thank you.

Can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your work with cpshop.  

Respectfully,

Bruce
