The RSS output is not RSS compliant

George Durtler
The supposed RSS output from PatentScope does not adhere to RSS standards causing issues when trying to read it.

Example:
On the simple search page, I entered a search expression for heart AND valve and clicked Search to get results plus an RSS icon that has the following URL:

http://patentscope.wipo.int/search/rss.jsf?query=FP%3A%28HEART+AND+VALVE%29&office=&rss=true&sortOption=Pub+Date+Desc

Now go the office RSS format validator of w3 org here:
http://validator.w3.org/feed/ 
and then enter that URL and click Check button.

Resolving the issues that are listed will make a BIG improvement towards usefulness, especially the invalid charactor issue as that causes reading of RSS to fail entirely!
