Don't put ampersands in Article Titles
Squishdot Posted by Mike James on Sunday January 19, 05:54AM, 2003
from the dept.
How-to break RSS feed from Squishdot...

Just put an ampersand (one of these - &) in the Article title. The article titled "squishdot & plone?" kills newsfeed readers because the ampersand isn't converted to "&"

I suppose this should be considered a bug in Squishdot.

    Are you using the standard RDF or the RSS 2.0 feed?

    How badly do you mean broken? html_quote doesn't guarantee pure HTML,either.
