More broken XML generated by blogging tools

First it was Movable Type doing it… now, WordPress generates differently but equally-broken XML for its inline trackback RDF discovery. Here’s an example:

<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="" 
    dc:title="\'Hat of the Day:  Chip Frederick"
    trackback:ping="" />

Backslashes don’t escape anything in XML

Update: Per the trackback below, WordPress fixed it! So, the current score is: WP 1, MT 0. (So, my message to all you WordPress bloggers over there on the sidebar: get thee to an update.)
