something wrong with the MetaFilter XML feed May 21, 2002 7:55 AM   Subscribe

There seems to be something wrong with the MetaFilter XML feed. I only get "posted by 'whoever »', time and date, and # of comments". Also the XML page says there is an error.

The XML feed isn't exactly bullet proof. It seems to choke on various extended characters (see this thread). I haven't seen a definitive list of which characters or entities cause problems.

Matt seems to have several projects on the go right now; maybe has just hasn't had time to debug the feed.
