SharePoint The document contains invalid utf-8 encoded characters

We used SharePoint to index a website and got the message "The document contains invalid utf-8 encoded characters".

To fix this, modify the target site and replace special characters with their encoded equivalent. For example, replace any £ characters with £. The same is true for ©, which should be replaced with &copy, etc.

Use the W3C validator to identify encoding issues.
