OPML Compatibility

Robert Scoble: I kept trying to open my OPML file in the OPML Editor and it wouldn’t open. [cut] I tried both the OPML file that NewsGator exported as well as the one that Bloglines exported. Newsgator’s OPML file wouldn’t even open (gave me an error) but Bloglines opened with blank titles.

Randy: Sam Ruby runs Robert's OPML thru the top three OPML validators. Hmmm! This is a great use-case. When I export from Bloglines, I know they use title attribute instead of text. A classic bug. I simply search-and-replace "title=" with "text=" and it works.
