Re: RSS : a "namespace" in itself ?
- Dave Winer's original suggestion of a portable RSS format is now
The original is gone from Harvard's blog server.
Reading that post and Randy's PSS 0.9 draft, I agree that we need a
way to use RSS elements in other XML dialects. But I'm not convinced
that the simplest way to do this would be to create a new format.
I think we should consider adding a sentence to the end of the
Extending RSS section :
"Using RSS elements in other XML dialects requires the namespace
declaration "http://www.rssboard.org/rss-namespace/". This declaration
MUST NOT be used in an RSS document."
The preceding paragraph currently states that RSS elements "are not
themselves members of a namespace" for backwards compatibility.
- 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).
