Description: When reading my site's AllRecentChanges feed (http://arndis.godsong.org/Main/AllRecentChanges?action=rss) sometimes there is an entry for AllRecentChanges rather than or in addition to the changed page. (I'm not in the habit of editing AllRecentChanges, though I did remove some dead links on Aug 30th.) I haven't noticed a clear pattern in when it does what.

I'm not certain if the problem is in the feed itself, or how Bloglines (my usual reader) reads it. Pm, I will email you what Bloglines remembers of this feed, since it is too large for the attachment limits.

However, I think the feed may have errors, since I tried several other readers without success:

Additionally, the action=rss instead of the usual filetypes for feeds could be throwing off some reader software.

It seems, that the

 <!DOCTYPE rdf:RDF [
    <!ENTITY % HTMLlat1 PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES Latin 1 for XHTML//EN"
      "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml-lat1.ent"> %HTMLlat1; 

is ignored by the feed validator and firefox so all what is defined in there is unknown to the XML parser. If you manually inline the content auf xhtml-lat1.ent insteat it works. I googled arround but don't found a better solution. -- Schlaefer November 15, 2004, at 02:02 PM

This bug may be fixed by the changes in 2.0.beta15 -- can someone confirm that it now works? --Pm

Seems to work now. Thanks.
