I'm trying to get my site's products uploaded to google's merchant center, but it's only uploading 2 of the ~20,000 I have. When I open the datafeed url (in Chrome) to look into it I get the error message "error on line 38 at column 761: Entity 'Acirc' not defined error on line 38 at column 761: Encoding error" Now I'm not sure exactly what the problem is, when I look at the product where it encountered the error everything looks ok but something is obviously not. What should I be looking into?

The  entity represents  in HTML, however, your feed should contain a literal  (with a supported encoding type) instead of the HTML entity.
