RSS Issues?

I got a note today from a reader that my WordPress blog’s RSS feed outputs XML with invalid syntax. I’ve been unable to reproduce this bug; has anyone else encountered this?

    Google reader is able to read the feed just fine. Firefox seems to be able to see it just fine as well.

    I personally setup feedburner for all of my sites. This way it will automatically fix the most common RSS issues.

    I get an error using tt-rss as an aggregator. I’ve seen the same problem on other wordpress sites (including my own) – upgrading wordpress fixed it for me.

    If I fetch your feed using wget, it starts with:


    The 2 bytes of hex right at the start is being inserted somewhere by WP, and it screws things up for some readers, but not for others.

    Anything that requests your RSS using HTTP 1.0 will not be happy, since the response comes with 1.1-only chunked transfer-encoding. The hex bytes are the length of the following chunk, but are not understood by (nominal) HTTP 1.0 clients.
