Formfeed character in posts not being handled

I recently generated an export file from my blog, and found that the resulting XML file contained a problem character, a formfeed ("FF", U+000C).

This character did not display at all in the actual post, but it was also not stripped or converted to something more standard such as a carriage return. I believe that one of those two things should be happening.

The post in question is http://brannerchinese.wordpress.com/2012/05/30/a-step-in-my-chinese-education. The current revision of the post lacks the formfeed; the previous revision had the formfeed as its very last character.

I'm not sure this is a bug in WordPress. Hi brannerchinese, if you can reproduce this, please let us know, but it sounds like you ended up getting a bad character into the post and that then caused you problems. I'm not sure what we can do here.
