      NetNewsWire imports and exports OPML subscriptions lists.

      It doesn't currently understand nested subscriptions lists, but that
      will change. (It will both import and export nested lists.)

      ***Importing

      It tries to be as forgiving as possible in what it accepts. It ignores
      case. For the name of a feed it first looks at the text attribute, then
      at the title attribute. For the home URL of a feed it looks at htmlUrl
      then at url.

      If an RSS URL doesn't exist, it does RSS auto-discovery to try to find
      the feed. (This makes it possible to import blogrolling.com OPML files,
      for instance.)

      ***Exporting

      It exports using ISO-8859 encoding, since that's most likely to be
      compatible (with Radio and with Windows aggregators).

      It sets the following attributes:

      text -- name of feed
      title -- name of feed (redundancy for compatibility sake)
      description -- description of feed
      type -- rss
      version -- RSS (more redundancy for compatibility sake)
      htmlUrl -- URL of home page
      xmlUrl -- URL of feed

      ***Sample OPML file
