Job RSS Feed is broken

hello, i've been playing around with the RSS feeds and they seem to be broken to me, first of all i tried to look for something outside the USA and the results i get are still in the US:

USA Search:
http://hotjobs.yahoo.com/rss/0/USA/-/-/MIS/java
Canada Search:
http://hotjobs.yahoo.com/rss/0/CAN/-/-/MIS/java

in fact, any country you try will result in USA results ???

also the advanced request is completely broken, i always get a 403 Firbidden error page.

note that you also said the basic RSS request is the same as the one used in HotJobs search site ... but that is not true, when I do a search on the site, the RSS generated is completely different:

http://hotjobs.yahoo.com/job-rss-k-java-c-...M-j-CONT-h-java

its not even the same syntax ??

what's going on here ?
I'm I loosing it? or is it broken?

thanks for you help.

    Hi,
    This forum is for the HotJobs APIs for recruiters. I have redirected your queries to the right place and will post the response as soon as I get it.
    To see the jobs in Canada, user should be in ca.hotjobs.yahoo.com i.e, http://ca.hotjobs.yahoo.com/rss/0/CAN/-/-/MIS/java

  • We have revamped the RSS URL Format and the documentation will be updated ASAP. To get an idea of the new format pls look at the rss link in Hotjobs search result page.
