      I'll agree with the above too - if I knew where to search for that
      document, I would have used that instead. I'd want to see the RSS 2.0 docs
      appended like:

      RSS places restrictions on the first non-whitespace characters of the
      data in <link> and <url> elements. The data in these elements must be
      an [IANA registered scheme], such as http://, https://, ftp://, mailto:,
      news://, etc. (for a full list, check the [IANA website]).

      The [] links would be the URL above.
