Problem with the Show Notes and Safari

If any of you are trying to use Safari to view the show notes, you may have encountered a rendering error, something about an un-escaped ‘<‘ in an attribute. I looked into this and the character in question is indeed escaped correctly, so there appears to be a bug in Safari. I have reported the problem to Apple, with a clear description and gave them a URL to one of the show notes files as well as attaching it directly to the bug report.

Until this is fixed in Safari, I suggest downloading the file and viewing with FireFox or, better yet, an outliner of some sort. I use OmniOutliner, personally, and can’t recommend it any more highly.

Alternatively, let me know if you’d like me to make the notes available in some other format, most likely HTML. It’s simple enough to do from OmniOutliner. If I wasn’t so damn lazy, I’d even write a script or Automator workflow to do it at the push of a button.
