1) Script Title: Pausing RSS Scroller
2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...ller/index.htm
3) Describe problem:
I'm using a little program called RSS Builder to generate the XML file for my RSS feed. It is very basic, I just need something so a user can update our website with the day's cancellations and scheduling changes.
However, the program uses CDATA tags in the Description element of the XML it generates, and it appears that RSS Pause Scroller doesn't like those -- it shows the Title and Date/Time info, but nothing from the Description field. I verified that I have "data+description" selected in the script. I confirmed that all my script settings are correct by successfully displaying the sample CNN/Slashdot sample scripts.
Am I missing something terribly simple here? If I manually edit the XML and remove the CDATA tag, the feed loads perfectly, scrolls, etc.
I'm very new to RSS feeds and DHTML in general, but I've done a few searches and haven't found anything so far. After fixing a few syntax errors it seems to be pretty clean when I run it through an RSS validator.
Here is the XML I'm using...
If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.
