Could someone please explain to me why RssOwl 1.1.3 seems to have problems displaying the headlines from this feed (that works fine in a lot of other readers):
You can find all their feeds here: http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Service/rss.htm
Heh, dr.dk added &escaping=Yes to the suggested URL's of the RSS feeds (the above becomes http://www.dr.dk/Forms/Published/rssNewsFeed.aspx?config=4cdd8bff-48a5-461c-a848-f553db411d4c&rss=Yes&rssTitle=DR+Nyheder+Online+-+Alle+nyheder&overskrift=Alle+nyheder+-+24+timer&Url=%2fnyheder%2f&escaping=Yes ) and even if it is opposite of what I read as intended (they DO NOT escape non-ascii's, if escaping=Yes ), it actually works:
* No more &#nnn; inside CDATA. *
Thanks for your assistance, Ben
That feed's XML is strange. They are using CDATA for unquoted text, but replace all entities. When CDATA is used, the XML parser is not replacing any entities and that is why things like '&#xyz;' keep showing up.
When looking at the feed with Firefox I am seeing the same result.
OK, I wasn't sure who to blaim.... ;-)
I'll attempt to contact the DR webmaster with this info.
