'++lang++' always should be at the beginning of the path.

If you use Zope 3.3 then there is the bug in zope.app.locales.extract - 
all templates treated as HTML. The bug was fixed on the trunk and for 
workaround you can just replace your extract.py with the extract.py from 
the trunk.

And make sure the template begins with the following fragment:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:tal="http://xml.zope.org/namespaces/tal">

Note '<?xml' always should be at the beginning of the XML file.
