RSS : a "namespace" in itself ?
I try to be precise in a generic and popularized RSS definition for non
RSS is an XML dialect. It can handle external namespaces declared by "xmlns"
But, hum, do you consider RSS as "namespace" in itself ? Or is it incorrect
to use this word.
In fact, I try to explain "namespace", in an RSS/Atom and modules/extensions
view, describing it as a group of elements all possibly used in a specific
goal, and needing to be declared to avoid polysemic confusion.
But how would you explain that RSS is a namespace... but that you don't have
to declare it the usual way... (with "xmlns") ? Is the "<rss
version=2.0>... </rss>" section enough to say that the RSS namespace is the
basic namespace I the newsfeed ?
- Awesome! I think then that most of us are in agreement, we just need
to decide whether to go with the userland or rssboard namespace. I'm
going to start a brand new thread (this one is too loud to follow).
