There isn't a content encoding in the HTTP headers or <head>... so I'd assume that's what will cause issues for non en-GB (?) users. Why couldn't everything just be ASCII :) I noticed the same encoding issue in some BBC Iplayer subtitles today...
My UK phone died several months ago but thankfully the TTL of messages is about a week. At least with e-mail your spam messages can be stored until deletion at your leisure. Much cheaper for the sender too.
It makes me think the conversion rate couldn't have been too bad for these guys.
