I got the following error when press the XML button:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://forum.alltelescopes.com/forum/rss/forums.page
Line Number 20, Column 27: <category>Equipment & Accessories, </category>
--------------------------^

I think a '&' symbol in the name of category can cause this error.

I also want to know, what is XML button for?
Thank!

You're right. I registered the bug at http://www.jforum.net/jira/browse/JF-186

Rafael,
I suggest that you rename XML to RSS.
See any of Yahoo forums for sample of such RSS button.

Keep you good work!

I thought abou that.. half of the sites use RSS, and the another half use XML.. But indeed, RSS seem to be a better choice.
