I'm sure it is, and the 'Content Encoded / CDATA' thing could be rolled
into this thread. Seeing as a new version is not so far away, and seeing
as we are talking two letters, no coding, no filename changes then is it
worth doing? I posted here because other readers may offer this now / in
the future and as such why not discuss it.

And as a sidenote, Bon Echo (the Firefox 2 dev) handles feeds very
gracefully. Displays them well and also has no problem with 'feed:'
