The reason my blogroll wasn’t hot is because I forgot that XML is so picky.
Here’s what happened. I have been using Newsgator, and since it exports in OPML
I decided to export, do a little massaging, and then use it in BlogX. Cut and
paste and there it was in my blog in all it’s glory. And I forget to test it.
(Bad Laura, Bad!) Once I get to work this morning, I look and look at the OPML
and it looks fine to me. I reduce it down to one entry. Still not hot.
Simplify that entry down, still not hot. Finally I give up and ask Andy Oakley
for a sample from a BlogX blog that works. He generously sends me the starting
point file (the one that has ChrisAn in it, surely you’ve seen it), and mentions that
it might be a case sensitivity problem.
And there it was. Duh. BlogX wanted htmlUrl and xmlUrl and Newsgator exported
htmlurl and xmlurl. What a pain. Why is there case sensitivity in XML?
I just don’t get it.
