Atom and Feedburner... Hmmm
So, recently (w/ the gmail switch) subscribed to the feedburner feedmedic alerts for my feed.. Now have a problem, as the image of geeks in scrubs jumping out of medevac helicopters is seared irrevocably into my brain... It's like M*A*S*H, but for RSS... "Call the Feedmedics"....

Anyway. Get a frequent msg that suggests that things are not quite smooth between blogger and feedburner. The message is this:
The name "xml" is not legal for JDOM/XML Namespace prefixs: Namespace prefixes cannot begin with "xml" in any combination of case.
Am curious to know what this means, whether it is anything I can control, and whether I can fix it. Also wonder how it affects subscribers. Any thoughts?

Hi there John. That's actually a FeedBurner issue that we need to address. Your feed is actually fine and being distributed just fine, so that message is just an internal problem that is being shown in your FeedMedic feed. We're trying to track it down.

So, to recap: Blogger's fine, your feed is fine, but we at FeedBurner have to stop dumping that message into your FeedMedic alerts.
