Problem with embedded spaces in link tag

Postby n2jtx » Fri Nov 09, 2007 3:10 pm

I have had problems for quite some time now with a feed from the United States Mint; http://www.usmint.gov/rss.xml . All of their CDATA tags have embedded spaces before and after the specified link:

Code: Select all

<link>
  <![CDATA[ http://www.usmint.gov/pressroom/index.cfm?action=press_release&ID=845 ]]>
</link>


The net result is that when I double-click on a title in the news list pane, I get an external browser that attempts to open http://%20http//www.usmint.gov/pressroo ... &ID=845%20. Internet Explorer's news reader as well as GreatNews reader pane is able to handle the link correctly through I believe GreatNews is probably performing a strict interpretation of the XML code within the news list pane.

I have written to the webmaster of the U.S. Mint but I seriously doubt that they will fix this.
I support the right to keep and arm bears
