### 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.
