#1195 Javascript in feed content causes exceptions


I am subscribed to the Gizmodo feed and they have script blocks in the content of their feed items. There are 3 or 4 exceptions that get thrown every time a feed item is loaded, which is a horrible user experience when you are loading the newspaper view. It seems like the embedded IE is trying to execute the js call, but no js file is loaded. There are a lot of object expected and unhandled exceptions being displayed.

Some example feed item content:

Through a touch screen interface, bathers can choose the temperature and height of the water, as well as any combination of oils, bubbles and fragrances.

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">galleryPost('bathomatic', 3, '');</script>

The Bath-O-Matic is equipped to run on home automatic Feed url: http://feeds.gawker.com/gizmodo/full

    Still occurs in If you checked in a code fix for this, perhaps you could leave a comment indicating that, rather than simply closing the issue. For me this is a major PITA

    Looks like I forgot to mention that IE is set to Display Notifications for Javascript errors.

    This should be fixed in the next release
