Awasu chokes on some Meerkat feeds, such as <http://www.oreillynet.com/meerkat/?p=1065&_fl=rss10>. Turns out that IE also chokes, giving:
<pre>
The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Is  valid?

If IE (and Mozilla) don't like the feed, it's a good bet it's not valid :-)

Somebody else was just having the a similar problem here: http://www.awasu.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=172. Meerkat are putting HTML markup into their XML feeds without wrapping it in a CDATA section. Sigh... :roll:

The feeds seem to work if you turn off descriptions.

Why the heck would you embed an â at the beginning of the description?
