I'm experiencing the same kind of problems with some (but not all) addresses containing non ascii characters. eg. "Bertolt-Brecht-Str. 2b, 09217 Burgstädt, Germany" or "St. Töniser Str. 29, 47906 Kempen, Germany" Appling this regexp to the xml response before handing it to Search::Yahoo::XML might (not tested) help: $string =~ s/&#x([0-9A-Fa-f]+);/chr(hex($1))/ge;

This is fixed in the (about to be released 1.11.1) version of Yahoo::Search http://blog.timbunce.org/2010/06/11/new-lease-of-life-for-yahoosearch/ Ask: FYI the release also properly decodes utf8, so the existing utf8 decode workaround in Geo::Coder::Yahoo isn't needed any more and may even cause problems (I don't know if decode() on an already decoded string is a problem. I've not checked.)
Thanks Tim - the next release will require Yahoo::Search 1.11.1 or newer.
