Post MSDN RSS Feed
Forgot to state that I am using Awasu Advanced Edition 1.1.3!


Awhile back MSDN came out with a number of RSS feeds and I subscribe to many of them and they were working fine in Awasu. However, at some point in time a month or so ago (you can judge how busy I am at work here :) ) they stopped working. I looked at the Just Published one at http://msdn.microsoft.com/rss.xml. I deleted it and re-added it and it gives the error "XML parse failed (4:L1/C0): not well-formed (invalid token)". I am guessing probably MSFT could be doing something not quite standard in their feed, but I doubt I will be able to get them to change. Can you look at this and see if you get a problem as well? It is an RSS 2.0 feed.

Are you still getting this? I subscribe to this feed as well and it's been fine for me. I can create a new channel for it as well.

When the error dialog comes up, you are shown what the feed contained - what are you getting? L1/C0 means line 1, column 0, BTW :-)

That's really weird. It's still OK for me.

1.1.3 is going to expire soon so you might want to try upgrading to 1.1.4. Send me an email for the Advanced Edition details.

If you wget the feed, you can see that this feed has an encoded Unicode byte-order mark at the beginning which may be causing the problem but as I said, it's OK for me :roll:

For future reference. Other details of my environments are I am running WinXP Prof Edition and IE6. Maybe this differs from yours?


Anyway, I initially thought about upgrading to 1.1.4 before posting on this forum, but on the Awasu site it looks like it is still a beta release (although maybe 1.1.3 is too?). If it is an "official release" as much as 1.1.3, I'm game. Where can I send you my email address? I would rather not post it here...

Nope. I'm exactly the same (although I'm running a pre-release of 1.1.5).
