Supported Character Encodings

SimplePie has integrated support for PHP's mbstring and iconv extensions. We've formally added support for every single character encoding we could find, and at this point, character set translation is more limited by your server setup than by SimplePie. SimplePie supports hundreds of character sets, and this is a complete listing of those that we expect to work out of the box (assuming your server/webhost supports it):
