JoS RSS feed doesn't pass feedvalidator.org
I've been saying this for ages, and I'll say it again, because I think people don't really grok this yet.

I recently wrote some blog parsing code. Thinking about your assertion Brad, I am inclined to agree. Out of the 400 blogs that I parsed, the majority of errors were non-well-formed XML (as opposed to well-formed XML that did not match its schema).
Of course in XML even strange things can trip you up.
My rss 0.91 feed doesn't validate there because
Dave, perhaps you could save the rss to your local file system and remove the line that starts with "<!DOCTYPE rss"? Then try to subscribe to it and see if it works?
ah, but that's the point of Atom isn't it--to have a real thought out standard.
Note that SharpReader consumes the JoS RSS feed just fine.
