Now I really should add support to my parser for type=html and type=xhtml on <title>s, even though I doubt the latter will be used much. It's already messing up one feed's titles in my reader, and is probably more annoying than the odd encoding issue I'm still having.
See, that's what a good spec is about - punishing developers for their own laziness, and making sure they can't blame anyone else.
