Description

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://update.mozilla.org/rss/?application=mozilla&type=E&list=rated
Line Number 23, Column 52:version of Googlebar, which means that the Menues & Texts

Should not have a raw & in the text/xml document. The CGI that is generating
this should escape such characters when creating the feeds.

Sigh.  Yep, we should be escaping the ampersands.

The RSS feeds are your thing.. str_replace() is probably your friend. :-)

Where is the make-safe logic you use for form input?  If you made it a generic
function, then it can call that, right?
