I am so sure we could find the reason if we had the information...
- no URL
- no Info from admin-panel (server etc.)
so what can we do?
we can tell you that PP produces clean feeds ...
how did you check? Where did you check? With feedvalidator?
we need more info from you, unfortunately

Really sorry for the trouble I am giving:-(
And thanks for being patient!:-)
The URL to my RSS feed is http://abhijitsplanet.com/pratibimb/index.php?x=rss
I have posted my blog (http://www.abhijitsplanet.com/pratibimb/) to an Apache server (Unix) having PHP and MySQL database. (U also need the version of PHP and MySQL?)
Pixelpost version is 1.5
I validated the rss feed at w3.org's RSS validating link.
Plz let me know if u need any more info.

One reason could be that the site shows as ISO-8859-1 - encoding even when the meta-directive in the template says "UTF-8"
When this is the case it means mostly that the server already sends codepage information to the browser and the meta-directive in the template is ignored by this.
Can you check whether the Apache server is configured to present UTF-8-encoding ?
you can check that by using a php-script with the directive
in a php-file at your webserver. But please delete this file after using it from the host, as this shows too much information ;=)
this small boy is great!

Connie, thanks for guiding me.
Though all what you said was too technical for me to understand, I checked the php info on my server sending the great small boy there:-)
On the return page I found
Please guide me further.

I will try, but must go to work now...
in the evening, ok, if there is no answer inbetween
For my FireFox browser your feed is fine and feed validator from w3c currently is out of order :/
