RSS feed doesn't validate.

My RSS feed isn't validating, and I can't figure out why...

Running it through the Feed Validator gives me the following error:

XML parsing error: :28:24: unclosed CDATA section

This happens semi-regularly with WordPress, and I haven't been able to track down a suitable answer as to why it happens, even in the WP forums.

Usually I can sniff out a bad character or something, but this time I'm simply stumped, and the post causing the problem is fairly important to me, so I'd like my few RSS subscribers to know about it.

My feed's address:

Hope me, hope me!

Well it ends with "<![CDATA[" which is obviously not valid. What's the post that should be there?

It's likely that something in WordPress is throwing an error just as it starts trying to output that post. Try disabling any WordPress plugins you've installed...

The problem is the first post on my site ( I've removed it and the feed validates. I've picked it apart paragraph by paragraph, and I can't find the culprit.

Dammit, I didn't mean to mark my comment as best answer. Sorry.

Dangit, I didn't know there was an unmark link, so my last comment sucks too.

Anyway, it was a plugin. Thanks very much mbrubeck.
