Many financial articles are computer generated. In fact, most of the news agencies mid-day market updates are done by computers that simply apply one of the templates to the numbers that are fed to them by other computers.

Hello,

The feed is sent in UTF-8 format. You have several options:

1. Change your site encoding to UTF-8, this is probably the easiest solution.
2. Use the picture format available at http://www.thefreedictionary.com/lookup.htm#22
3. Use server-side code using our RSS feed http://www.thefreedictionary.com/lookup.htm#rss

Good luck!
