Description

I have the latest files for RSS, and the RSS feed is malformed. I fails to load properly in Firefox, and loads in other readers (e.g. Yahoo) but without formatting.

RSS Validator says one error is that there is an extra line before the first <xml... line, which is causing it to be parsed as HTML and not as XML for RSS. See here for an example; http://www.casesofinterest.com/tiki/tiki-wiki_rss.1.43.2.1.php?ver=2


I have spent a lot of time tracing the calls and I can't figure out why it works fine for blogs, but not for wikis as the code is similar. I hope someone who knows more than I can fix this.

Solution

After much trial and error, I discovered the problem - somewhere in loading the difflib and diffing the two versions caused some sort of error in PHP. As a result, the php script was running twice. The initial output (however good) was getting overwritten by the second print output, but in doing so, it left a blank line at the beginning of the output which malformed the RSS.

Seeing as I didn't like the diffing in any event, attached is a revised file for RSS that will produce properly formed output, and the full text of the wiki page - not the diff'ed text.
