You might want to take a look at OCS , which is way of describing directories of channels, i.e. metadata for channels. Each channel entry contains a description of the channel, categorisation and contact details. Each channel can have multiple formats (RSS, ScriptingNews, Avantgo, plain text, etc) each with their own publishing schedules. It's used currently by a number of channel providers and readers such as XMLTree , Carmen's Headline Viewer  and StartsHere . It should be easy enough to parse OCS for a WAP phone (in fact I already do it indirectly at StartsHere ) I'm working on the next version (0.5) which will tidy up some of the syntax. I'm also soliciting for any additional features people have for the format - just mail them to me and I'll see how they fit.
