That should show up fine in LG; all our HTML has 'UTF-8' specified as the encoding.

Just FYI - we generally avoid changing articles after publication. Given that we have quite a few mirror sites, all of which pull our new issues shortly after publication (and then never touch them again), changing our copy would just put us out of sync with the rest of the world.

The best way to "update" an article is either by writing a new one about the updated state of things - or do what you've done here, i.e. post to TAG.
