Matt Sergeant Releases Simple RSS Mirroring Tool

The Web Site xmlhack is reporting that Matt Sergeant has written a small RSS mirroring tool in Perl that also has the ability to clean up certain HTML entities that do not translate well in RSS files. By this we mean things like non-USD currency symbols, accented characters, and so on.

This script could be a useful tool in building a robust RSS validator. As far as CTDATA is concerned, there are not enough trustworthy public RSS validators available on the Internet at this time.
