RSS feed is not working on Internet Explorer


Hello there,

I’ve just noticed that the feed format is not working on Internet Explorer, even the “RSS feed example“ of this page is not working. It works fine on Mozilla Firefox, which I have been using for testing so far, but not on Explorer.

Would anyone please be able to help me?

Many thanks

This seems ought because I just checked with IE 7/9 and there seems to be no problem for the listed examples. Further the output is generated in a similar fashion (using the same methods) as Changes which also does not suggest that the display is browser dependent.

Hello MWJames,

First of all thanks for replying to my post. I have now uploaded a screen shot of a IE8 browser that is displaying the Changes link that you have mentioned on your above reply.

This is how all of the feed format pages from the ASK query with type RSS look like on all of the IE8 browsers. On Firefox everything seem to be displayed fine however with no problems.

Any ideas on this one?

Many thanks

Well, I don't know (I'm not a IE user and I'm not planning to be one) but as long as the W3C validates[1] the RSS feed output as "well-formed XML", it also declares that the output abides the official W3C standard.
