    ie7 doesn't support DTD for whatever reason. I assume that OT's feed is generated dynamically via script and thus you couldn't manually edit the feed else everytime you refresh it would be fubared again.

    you could set up a script/website/service to accept the same query string that ot's generated, then make a request to ot via script and parse out the dtd on the way in and return the dtd-less rss feed. Then point ie7 at the script/site/webservice
