Could someone take a look at my entry and see if I'm missing something that would cause a 400 bad request error?  I've been adding the same type entry for a month now with no problem, so I'm assuming I must be missing something in my coding.  The entry is using the comcode list markup, and I've marked every day's entry up the same for days now with no issues. My title is simple text: "Today In Music" I'm checking it as a yearly occurance, and checking "no reminders," the same as I've been doing.

  - 1984: At a whistle-stop in Hammonton, New Jersey, campaigning president Ronald Reagan praised singer Bruce Springsteen, saying in part: "America's future rests in a thousand dreams inside your hearts; it rests in the message of hope in songs so many young Americans admire: New Jersey's own Bruce Springsteen. And helping you make those dreams come true is what this job of mine is all about." This leads to widespread criticism in the press, since Springsteen's recent hit "Born In The U.S.A." was in fact a bitter cry of outrage at how poorly the United States treats its veterans, which Reagan had apparently mistaken for a straight-forward patriotic anthem - an easy mistake to make if you listen to the chorus only and not the lyrics.
  - 1985: Frank Zappa, John Denver and Dee Snider of Twisted Sister testify at a senate hearing where the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) is arguing for a ratings system on music. The musicians make the case that this is censorship, but the PMRC wins a victory and warning labels are ordered on album containing explicit lyrics.
 - Releases

 - TV, Radio, Press
  - 1963: Ann-Margret lends her voice to an episode ofThe Flintstones, where she appears as "Ann-Margrock."
  - 1971: The Jackson 5's Goin' Back To Indiana TV special airs on ABC
  - 1991: Michael Jackson is a guest voice on The Simpsons, where he plays a mental patient Homer befriends named Leon Kompowski.

Hi,

There was a very slight error in your Comcode. A missing " - " in one of the list entries. This made the Comcode parser give a 400 error. I guess IE9 is showing a generic screen instead of our correction interface.

I have corrected your Comcode in your own post.

I will look at:
  • Working around IE9's messaging
  • Reducing the harshness of Comcode error reporting

Thanks Chris.  I knew I had to be missing something, but for the life of me couldn't find it.  I tell ya, when you turn all punctuation on inside your screen reader it can get confusing at times to hear all that.
