Default XML encoding error - cause of all recent problems?

Did someone forget to update the link?
The error message I see (looking with FF) is a bit more specific:
XML Parsing Error: syntax error
Location: http://www.desktoppublishingforum.com/bb/external.php?type=RSS2
Line Number 1, Column 36:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8 no BOM"?>
that " no BOM" part (including leading space) should not be there. The link is there, the file it links to is broken.

Now, this is interesting, because if I want to edit my own message (which tries to use AJAX, which also uses XML!), The first click does nothing at all, but on the second click I get a bunch of (JavaScript) errors in my FF error console; last time I paid attention I saw a similar error, also quoting an XML processing statement with that same encoding="UTF-8 no BOM".

Come to think of it, I think the upload form also uses AJAX...

We may have hit on a common cause for all recent problems!
