Description (last modified by westi)

The author url from does not seem to do full format checking. Not apparent in browsers since they will understand malformed urls but is a problem when outputting elsewhere.


<author type="string"><![CDATA[<a href="">Stanislav Gunčaga</a>]]></author>

Looks like this is data straight from the plugin:

Not sure if we should adjust the parser to correct this. It's quite the edge case.

That's not the issue.. It's the validity of the URL: "http:" versus "http://".

Too edge case, I'd say. If we decide that we want to support odd formats for this sort of thing, we can make a new ticket in meta for it.
