Wishbox screenshots only work for utf-8 sites?

    Hi,

    I've been testing out your wishbox feature, and there's one thing that's been bothering me about it - the screen capturing seems to ignore charsets that the site uses (iso-8859-1 in our case) and takes screenshots as if the site was in utf-8 encoding instead. Is there perhaps an option I'm missing that overrides this, or does wishbox only support utf-8 sites at the moment? And if it's the latter - any plans to permit other encodings in the near future?

    Can you provide us with URLs or even screenshots where you are see this happening?

    The issue can be observed with any non-utf8 websites, as far as I can see. For example:

    http://tv2.dk/

    http://politiken.dk/

    http://mixi.jp/

    http://mail.ru/

    et. al.
