If there is a german "Umlaut" like Ä,Ü or Ö in the title of a posting, the RSS Feed is not being created correctly. Firefox evens says "Feed failed to load".
You can check my blogs Feed at http://www.wolfgang-dietl.at/wp-rss2.php , you'll see the error when adding it as live bookmark.

You cannot use named entities in your posts in XML. Either use numeric entities or the UTF-8 character directly. WordPress can't fix this for you.
