Import weirdness - XMLRPC failure

I've successfully imported several times in the past, but today when i tried it I got the following:

XMLRPC failure: Client error: Invalid text encoding: Cannot display this post. Please see http://www.livejournal.com/support/encodings.bml for more information.

I checked the encodings page, read the explanation, and figured it meant that some weird characters had gotten into the posts somehow. But both posts look completely innocuous. I checked the known issues in the wiki, but didn't see anything that looked like this at first glance.
