#5460: WXR importer doesn't like XML files with </item><item>

 I'm trying to import a WXR file that contains the following:


 ...in between different blog entries. However, !WordPress keels over, and
 doesn't import the file properly.

 Getting a text editor and manually find-and-replace'ing all occurrences of
 {{{</item><item>}}} with:



 The main problem is that !WordPress doesn't actually use an XML parser to
 import stuff. However, I set the ticket severity to "minor", as !WordPress
 itself doesn't generate WXR files that contain {{{</item><item>}}} — it's
 only when using a particular third-party generator that this happens.
 However, it's !WordPress' fault that it's failing, as there should really
 be no difference between the above two examples.
