This sounds like the template itself, not the processed result is being fed
to the validator. Are you sure you are not pointing to the template source?

You can make valid RSS output using DTML, if that is what you mean. Do
remember that the DTML tags are instructions to Zope DTML objects to do
something specific there; DTML tags have no meaning to RSS processors, only
the *result* of the tags after DTML processing.

Personally, I use ZPT for XML output; it flows more naturally.
