    initial v1  
    1 Discovered at http://ilaba.wordpress.com/feed/ -- apparently WordPress does not strip out control characters when generating CDATA sections in the RSS feed for blogs at wordpress.com. As a result, if an author includes a control character (in this case, ^L) in their post, the CDATA section that is wrapped around the post content will be poorly formed. Therefore, the XML document for the feed will not be well formed, and therefore not parsable by many XML parsers.

    33The feed in question was not parsable on scienceseeker.org on 7/6/13, which is why I am interested in the question. It may be corrected by its owner by the time you test it, so I am attaching a copy of the broken version to this ticket.
