Please let me know if version 0.8 fixes your problem (or accept the answer so I know it worked).

This is a bug. The input isn't correctly determining the encoding of the page. I have a bug report created for and will get it fixed very soon.

Update:
This should work now as of version 0.8.

Is the site you are trying to get information from public? If so, could you share the selector you are using and the URL you are trying to load data from so that I could reproduce the issue?
