Unfortunately Incompatibility

Dave Winer: Last night I wrote file converters for Bloglines and RSS Bandit, to make it possible for OPML Editor users to edit, organize, combine and split RSS subscription lists created by these apps. There's been some unfortunate incompatibility, visible for the first time for users.

Randy: It would seem that Dave has discovered the outline/title bug.
