Content Is Not Allowed In Prolog

Got this issue in the morning. We have service that "aggregate" data from multiple RSS into 1 RSS. The issue appeared because at one of RSS we enabled encode option [encode UTF-8] but not [encode UTF-8 without BOM]:
encode in UTF-8
encode in UTF-8 without BOM.
our Java parse does not understand this BOM (byte order mark). So we just swtiched to one without BOM byte. I've made tests using this online tool, it worked just as I expected XMLValidator

Cool trick which I never saw in LotusScript. Pass function as parameter.

Read this code
'Comments for SetValue
Sub SetValue(src As Variant, target As Variant)
 If IsObject(src) Then
  Set target = src
  target = src
 End If
End Sub

'Comments for Test
Function Test(value As Variant) As Variant
 SetValue value, Test
End Function
You can call Test(now) or Test(customobject) or Test("ABC") it will return you just same object/value. nice, isn't it?
msgbox Test(now).DateOnly
msgbox Test("Helllo")
msgbox Test(customobject).customProperty
Do not see right now really huge benefits from this but just nice to know this.

Predefined NoteID for design elements and applications

Sometime those NoteIDs can be quite useful, so I decided to gather all of them into place I can easy find.

FFFF0002 "About This Database" document
FFFF0004 Default form
FFFF0008 Default view
FFFF0010 Database icon
FFFF0020 Database Design Collection (view)
FFFF0040 Database ACL
FFFF0100 "Using This Database" document
FFFF0800 Replication Formula

ReplicaID for few databases:

0000000000000E00 Mail database
0000000000000E01 Personal Address Book
0000000000000E02 Subscription Database
0000000000000E03 Bookmark
