Hey guys, I am using LWP::UserAgent to import data from a website into a database but I get malformed text. When I look in the source of the original I see chars like ok but when imported I get weird chars like below. Any ideas?
Wir können -> Wir kÃ¶nnen TÜV absolvieren -> TÃœV absolvieren

Yupp, that's what I was going to suggest when I read your first post. I ran into that a few times. Does anyone know if ->decoded_content has any major drawbacks? Most people use ->content, even in documentation, and don't worry about character encoding.
