Yes, they're at it again

Our apologies -- the official report is once again in a state of utter nonsensical garbage because someone's published a debate XML file which can't possibly even validate under their own rules. (Hi, guys! Want us to stop calling you out? Stop screwing it up!)

Stepping into an overly-specific technical domain for a moment, and to ask a question which only they and we understand: why --

  1. you use a DTD which permits you to enter Question elements under a 'General Debate' heading?
  2. Conversely, if the DTD isn't broken and in fact doesn't permit that, why aren't you USING IT to validate your output?
  3. And since when was <table> a valid element to start a Debate section with?

We ask because these three points, if understood properly, would cover almost every single cockup you've made since we launched.

You know how to find us...
