As requested in Bug 418277, a seperate bug here to request a change for the Live Bookmark for the Afrikaans (af) locale in Firefox 3. This is a feed of the newspaper, Beeld.

The URL for the RSS feed:
http://www.news24.com/News24v2/Components/Generic/news24RSSFeed/0,8069,3,00.xml

Could we get a good URL for this? Like, I've found a bunch of feed URLs, but not the one quoted here.

Another thing is that the site doesn't send a charset header, so when you switch to utf-8 for intl.charset.default, you see encoding errors and the feed doesn't trigger the feed preview, but just xml pretty print.

Yet another problem is the use of html entity definitions in the feed, which are not defined in XML, i.e., in feeds.

Seems like we should open an evangelism bug before we proceed, at least to me.

Can we please change this URL to:
http://feeds.beeld.com/articles/Beeld/Tuisblad/rss
which is the URL they are currently advertising. I still wish we had something better to consider, but this is probably still the best. I have a tentative meeting with guys at another newspaper that might result in a better alternative eventually.

ping, stas? Are live bookmarks still used anywhere?
Not sure if this was ever fixed, marking as WONTFIX at this point.
