php encoding issue

Hi,

I've created a basic php rss reader, and am trying to translate a utf-8 feedburner feed into ISO-8859-1 to embed in my website. I'm using utf8_decode() on the text I get back from the feed, however it doesn't seem to be working. Instead of getting â¬S for quotes and â¬" for apostrophe's, all of those characters are just converted into question marks. The same thing happens when I use mb_convert_encoding($entry->title,"ISO-8859-1", "UTF-8").  How can I get these characters to appear correctly?

Thanks
