Hello, In May iTunes stopped updating my podcast in their directory and I started getting mail from folks saying they weren't getting the new eps via iTunes.
Checked the feed against feedvalidator.org/ and everything looked fine there.
Contacted iTunes and didn't hear back until recently:
When attempting to update your feed, we're seeing the following error message:
Error parsing feed: Invalid XML: Error on line 1: Content is not allowed in prolog.
After using command 'zap gremlins' in BBEdit to identify any offending code, the following line item from your XML is highlighted:
<copyright>Copyright © the crankcast 2012 </copyright>
Please refer to our Tech Spec for common mistakes and proper named character entities:
Once this has been corrected, please write in here and we'll gladly review your feed.
Looking at the link provided says that the correct value for the copyright symbol should be " © " .
Does this make sense to anyone else? Nothing I know of changed between when it worked and when it didn't.
Should I track down the line that generates the symbol and change it to their recommendation?
Which file contains that?
