The RSS feed is not working properly today - yahoo changed something today - it does not work on my website nor the firefox reader.. They appear to have added a - in front of several of the lines.. All other rss feeds work in the reader - just not yahoo groups.  If they fail to respond - could the author make a fix for this?  I'm using 1.4 on Joomla 1.012

Here is an example code problem.. Note the - in front of several of the items such as  <rss   amd <channel and <item

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
- <rss xmlns:dc=" purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/ " version="2.0">
- <channel>
  <title>LPFM at Yahoo! Groups</title>
  <link> groups.yahoo.com/group/LPFM/ </link>

Actually it appears it may not be yahoo afterall.  It seems that when someone uses an apostrophe, or a quote, it is causing the simple reader script to fail.  The author has failed to parse these?  Could the author help me out here?

Here is the rss code that is causing the script to crash - note the word green is using single quotes -- 'Green' which should be parsed and is not happening.

This thing is useless if it doesnt properly parse out script killing characters.  And the author doesnt want to hear from me -- whats the point in putting this thing out in the first place. >:(
