This entry broke the syndication. I think you need to use " in your translation for RSS.

Sorry, I don't follow. Should I not be escaping the string composed of "ampersand q u o t semicolon" to turn it into "ampersand a m p semicolon q u o t semicolon"? Should I just leave it "ampersand q u o t semicolon"?

Right now your entry, once the entities in the feed are decoded (by the XML parser), looks like this:

<a href="foo=%22bar%22">

but if you make it look like this:

<a href="foo=&quot;bar&quot;">

you might have better luck with feed readers. Or it might just be Bloglines getting confused.

Thanks. I fixed the traceback.

I think there's a bug in Mark Pilgrim's feed parser which is causing this problem. I downloaded it (it's what Nick is using) and was able to get it to do weird things by putting quoted XML special characters in tag attributes.
