Subject: Incorrect escaping
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 315b
hello, When adding items using add_item I notice that things like < and other entities get escaped correctly though I found that accented characters does not get escaped correctly. See the file http://mail.devco.net/~rip/freebsd.security.xml on line 3512. This results in the feed failing validation. Thank you.

XML:RSS has never had a very rational escaping/encoding policy. One of these days will rip out the guts of the module (and stop using XML::Parser while we're at it) I took a look at the below feed, but I don't see the problem. Could you perhaps supply a short sample of the code you ran that was generating broken RSS? thanks kellan [guest - Sat Nov 22 16:51:47 2003]: Show quoted text

hey, On line 3512 you will see the following: "Fernando Córdova Suárez" and you can see what the feed validator thinks about it here: http://www.feedvalidator.org/check?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmail.devco.net%2F%7Erip%2Ffreebsd.security.xml+ that should show it nicely. thanks, hope this helps.

hello, I fiddled some more and found that pushing my description content through HTML::Entities::encode fixes it up perfectly :) [guest - Sun Nov 23 06:40:17 2003]: Show quoted text
