Re: [TV] ABC1 listings available

Hello -

Does anyone know what character set is being used on the
http://xmltv.radiotimes.com/xmltv/channels.dat pages?

Judging by the encoding of the foreign cast in "The 400 Blows" at
http://xmltv.radiotimes.com/xmltv/105.dat, it is something close to DOS CP437, but not exactly.
CP437 gets Francois Truffaut's circumflex right, but I'm sure that Jean-Pierre Leaud doesn't have an
umlaut in his surname.

It's doesn't appear to be any of the ISO-8859-x encodings or any form of Unicode that I've come
