Kiwidude | 28 comments For the following ISBN: 9780006483564

When I put this book on a shelf, and then try to read the contents of a shelf I get badly formed xml coming back from the API call.

Kiwidude | 28 comments The problem lies in the field. Could it be some sort of encoding issue?

Shawn | 23 comments I'm seeing the same thing with one of my books. I know I can work around it but it really should be spitting out the correct UTF-8 encoding. Any chance of getting this addressed?

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) I think we patched Kiwi's issue (we've been emailing back and forth).

Steven: It looks ok for me, can you give me the exact url that is bonking for you?
