Unescaped angle brackets in the content field of the entry for thread 50111 are to blame.

<blockquote><I>.. to my left&lt;/a&gt; is a youngish software developer from Yokohama, incandescent with rage. To my right is the finance officer of a major games publisher. Worryingly, he is tapping sums into a pocket calculator and shaking his head...&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;

(I have to admit I'm awfully curious how those two tags managed to escape escaping.)

I fixed it. The poster put the first two tags into the URL description field along with the first few words. Apparently if you do that, they don't get escaped.

Let me know if the feed works now.

Huh. That's some evil genius shit right there. Matt may want to close that up.

Yeah, this seems to happen to me in Safari's feed reader a couple times a month. Thanks for fixing it.
