On sites that I publish using PHP and MySQL, I've been offering extremely simple RSS 0.92 feeds that blow up when unusual characters like "¿" are used.
This one's a weblog entry, the other's an article that lives outside the weblog in a text file.
I was reading your comments about an apnea monitor & no offense, but I think you need to have some compassion. My son died of SIDS 2 years ago today & our daughter Meadow was on a monitor her 1st year of life. No, she was not bothered by it because it was all she knew. It did save her life though. She was a preemie and had various apneas I had to wake her up & make her breathe. You are right the monitors cannot stop SIDS, but maybe they can help causes out. I hope that you will reply to me at firstname.lastname@example.org also visit my sons website @ www.sidsfamilies.com/families/dalton-hf.shtml

You must have me confused with someone else -- I haven't made any comments about apnea monitors on this or any other Web site. Sorry for your loss.
