I've used a wordpress.com hosted blog (http://mhh1422.wordpress.com) for long time and used to add my posts in both English and Arabic to it. Later, I've decided to move to a self-hosted wordpress blog (http://mhh1422en.al-shehab.com).
I've exported my old blog's content using tools->export and then used the tools->import option in the new blog, but unfortunately, Arabic posts, comments, ... got an worng encoding and appeared as not understood characters, and you can check the two sites: http://mhh1422.wordpress.com (the old) and http://mhh1422en.al-shehab.com (the new) to get the idea.
I've tried to open the exported XML file in the browser and changed the encoding from windows-1256 into different ones like utf8, windows-1252, windows-1251 but with no result.
Can anyone help me how to resolve this issue?
Thanks very much
The blog I need help with is mhh1422.wordpress.com.
