OPML without Hassle

Last week, I was working on a bug report related to an OPML import. I quickly realized that the OPML was invalid and I fixed the OPML for the user. The user filed a bug report with the RSS agent that produced the OPML file. The developer responded that he thought the validator was wrong, he also suggested the issue isn't documented anywhere and that the importing agent was at fault. I replied with a link to the OPML spec and an excerpt that addresses the issue. We still have work to do on OPML interop. This has to begin with the OPML validator. Let's make this OPML validation day. Please export your OPML, validator it and note issues in the comments. Problems will be forwarded to the developer of the OPML tool.
