  4. The problem has to do with the & symbol. Whenever you post a link with &, you need to change it to &amp; in order for it to be correctly distinguished as part of a query string.

    Yep, and when the feed does not validate, you might get a better explanation from the page validator as it will fail also...

    Thanks for the repsonse guys but the problem I have is the blog is updated with a yahoo rss feed that has passed the validator check.

    How can I then manaully amend the feed to prevent this from occuring?

    By thw way, I use feedwordpress to automatically post to the blog.

    thanks Pari

    hello,
    I think there is a bug in WP,
    every user can send a post with & < > " or ' within the title,
    and those reserved characters for XML are not escaped for the
    rrs file autmomaticly produced .
    regards,
    ff
