I put that out last night in hopes that the actual lines being reportedwould help them diagnose the errors.  Mythic is running a websitecontest right now, and I know a lot of the sites they have listed arerunning GP, so they're seeing it for sure.

It depends, we all know they are "seeing it" but to weather or not theyare really getting it across that its their own fault, and not someoneelses, well thats definatly another story. DARN MYTHIC!

The servers file is a good one to hear about, but last night I pushedsomething that actually opens up a socket to retrieve the news feed,instead of .Net's usual way of doing transforms from remote sites...Once I got a plain old string with the contents of the file, I startedhacking at the parts that had bad encoding, replacing them with validencoding.  After that, I took the string and fed it into theparser (instead of a direct remote load), and then the transform wentahead with no problems. 

The specific encoding problem with the news feed is a common one, andpops up with those feeds every once in a while... The change shouldhelp avoid the problem altogether, in case it pops upagain.  

I couldn't do anything with the server feed though, since it wasn'tencoding but actual missing elements... So that one they must havefixed up.
