8-bit (Scandinavian) characters render incorrectly

All feeds (title, textual content) with Scandinavian characters (ä, Ä, ö, Ö, å, Å) render incorrectly in Newsblur WEB (they render correctly in NewsBlur Android app) on Chrome. Character mapping goes wrong and letters render as follows:

ä > å
ö > ú

I'm running Windows 10, Chrome latest release (63.0.3239.132, Official Build, 64-bit). Characters render correctly in FireFox (latest 57.x release).

Anything can be done (on my side, or server side)?

Could not find any setting from Chrome to impact this charset (?) issue. Websites with scandinavian letters render correctly on my Chrome.

Any follow-up on this? The problem persists on Chrome (also Canary) browser and ONLY the channels and feed topics, NOT in the textual content itself (see image attachment). Works OK e.g. in Android NB and with Firefox. I'm using Windows 10. Ping @samuel ;)
