    I tried to iomport a OPML file from Feedreader, and it could not read the whole file. Now Im wondering if the opml file isnt correct or if there is a bug in rssowl.

    When I import it in rssowl (latest version) it will complain about line 13 ("Mozilla Firefox::Newest Extensions"):
    Error on line 13: The reference to entity "type" must end with the ';' delimiter.

    Heres the file:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <opml version="1.0">
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>

      Hi Erik,

      yes, looking at the OPML file, something is wrong in there. All amps ("&") need to be escaped by the entity "&amp;". Currently that OPML file is not XML valid, so RSSOwl is not able to import the file.

      It should work after you've escaped all "&" with "&amp;".

      Regards,
      Ben

        Ok, that was what I thought. No problem, I already copied the sites into rssowl by hand so it was no problem.

        Thanks
