I have tried solve my encoding problem but didn’t find anything working for me in this forum.
So I tried to validate my shop and I get this problem:


unable to validate this document because on line 319 it contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8 (in other words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character encoding indication.

The error was: utf8 “\xE4” does not map to Unicode.


Wich document does it validate? and is this what cause my encoding problems? If this is it please explain what i should do!  Please help me, I have spent so many hours on this now!
