Looking good voyager. Here's a small patch that will convert any UTF-8 extended ascii from XML::Parser to latin1 so odd nodetitles or usernames look right.

Example nodetitle from today's new nodes:

Before: Reactionary Coding—One-Shot Programs
After : Reactionary Coding—One-Shot Programs

Add this conversion subroutine:

sub UTF8_latin1 { # UTF-8 to latin1 regex from XML::TiePYX (thanks to mirod) my($text) = @_; $text =~ s{([\xc0-\xc3])(.)}{ my $hi = ord($1); my $lo = ord($2); chr((($hi & 0x03) <<6) | ($lo & 0x3F)) }ge; return $text; }
Add two lines to the foreach loop in sub html_by_type:
foreach my $node (@$nodes) { $node->{cdata} = UTF8_latin1($node->{cdata}); # ADDED my $link = $q->a({-href => "$url_base$node->{node_id}"}, $node +->{cdata}); my $node_text = $q->li($link); my $author = $authors->{$node->{author_user}}; $author = UTF8_latin1($author); # ADDED $node_text .= ('&nbsp;' x 2) . $q->small(" by $author") if $SH +OW_AUTHOR; print $node_text; }
