again: changes in rss-format?

April 9, 2010 | 7:54 am

hello
since yesterday 13:08 european time my apple mail can´t receive the max-forum rss anymore.
error: the rss-feed couldn´t be loaded because the content has an unknown format
(my translation from german).
strangely the jitter rss still works.

last week something had changed with the way, apple mail retrieved the feed: http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=25764
which then reverted mysteriously after 2 days.

now this. i wonder, whats going on??
i would be very grateful for any poniters if mail is simply glitching or if there are real changes in the rss formatting.

thanks
hans

Hi kochhw,

I believe the problem is related to individual posts that people make and special characters within those posts. Not every RSS reader is able to parse the special characters, so they complain with a message like the one you’re reporting.
