Parsing error on

It seems there’s a parsing error on…, feed_id 142. I’ve attached a screenshot. You’ll notice the odd tags (one of which actually looks like a link, the next two have garbled HTML in them), the fact that almost the entire article is a link, etc. The feed “validates” (…) but does have some complaints.

This is actually not the first time I’ve seen this, but chalked it up to strangeness on the remote side. See stories "
Cennydd Bowles on UX & Design: Shades of Discoverability", “Rachel Andrew on the Business of Web Dev: How Do You Go on Vacation?”, and “David Sleight on New-School Publishing: The Hands in the Cookie Jar” for more information.


I’m seeing the same issue on their other feed,… (…)

this has been happening almost since I first subbed to it. But I never looked at the source.

I have the same issue. A List Apart puts “topics” in their feed via dc:subject, but its content is a cdata block of html text:

<subject>User Experience, <a href="&lt;a%20href=" http: rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//feedsfeedburnercom/topic/interaction-design">/topic/interaction-design</a>"&gt;Interaction Design, <a href="&lt;a%20href=" http: rel="nofollow" target="_blank">/topic/user-research</a>"&gt;User Research, <a href="&lt;a%20href=" http: rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//feedsfeedburnercom/topic/application-development">/topic/application-development</a>"&gt;Application Development, <a href="&lt;a%20href=" http: rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//feedsfeedburnercom/topic/community">/topic/community</a>"&gt;Community]]&gt;</subject>

This is a pretty gross practice, but it shouldn’t break newsblur the way it does.
