The planet.osgeo.org looks...simply it does not look at all.
I have checked randomly a few blogs with http://validator.w3.org and
it does not look good.
Some blogs are even claiming XHTML strict in DOCTYPE  and are
generating ~300 errors!
This is impossible to find out if the problem is with the planet
itself or with the blogs.

I want to call all bloggers syndicated with the planet.osgeo.org to
consider checking their
blogs with the validator and fix any serious errors if reported. The
serious errors are ill-formed
tags, missing closing tags or <br/> vs <br />, etc.

Thank you for your understanding!
