The problem is caused by incorrect dynamic interpretation of Blogger XML template when it generates the HTML webpage for the blog page that is requested, probably due to the fact that the AdSense ad code or other code is not a valid XML, coupled with the fact that some ASCII characters have special meaning and reserved functions, confusing Blogger blogging engine.

Above two is enough to make Google AdSense works in Blogger template. For other scripts, such as AdBrite ad code, you will need to replace more characters such as those listed below.
& = &
” = "
For example, a Google AdSense code should become looks similar to code below:
google_ad_client = "pub-XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
google_ad_width = 336;
google_ad_height = 280;
google_ad_format = "336x280_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel = "";
google_color_border = "FFFFFF";
google_color_bg = "FFFFFF";
google_color_link = "000000";
google_color_text = "000000";
google_color_url = "000000";
While an AdBrite ad code will became the similar code to the below:
var AdBrite_Title_Color = '0000FF';
var AdBrite_Text_Color = '000000';
var AdBrite_Background_Color = 'FFFFFF';
var AdBrite_Border_Color = 'FFFFFF';
<div><a target="_top" href="http://www.adbrite.com/mb/commerce/purchase_form.php?opid=303771&afsid=1" style="font-weight:bold;font-family:Arial;font-size:13px;">Your Ad Here</a></div>
Simply use the text editor to parse the code and then replace the characters. Don’t worry about violating AdSense TOS or other terms and conditions, as once the blog’s web pages are rendered and presented to the viewers and visitors, the code will be exactly same as the original code before any replacement!
