Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Splat!

If I’m going to be The Lone Man, I can’t very well let bozos who stick control-characters (hex 80 to 9F) in their RSS feeds spoil my validation, now can I?

I patched the mt-rssfeed plugin to strip control characters. Don’t know why I didn’t squash this bug earlier.

Update: A better solution is not to muck with the mt-rssfeed plugin itself, but rather to apply my StripControlChars global text filter plugin to its output.
