RSS has made a very large impact on the web and the XML community at large. However I think it is time for a 0.92 revision. Specifically because RSS should become more of a slashdot type discussion content while maintaining it's thin capability as in my.netscape.com and my.yahoo.com. I have the following suggestions: ======================================== Ideas for a 0.92 version of RSS - support an author within an item - necessary for a RSS channel published by a company (www.slashdot.org, www.exolab.org) - support an image within an item - adds extensions to become more like a portal site. For small my.netscape.com this can just be ignored. However for weblog sites like slashdot or my home page (relativity.yi.org) this is necessary. - <more> which is a URL that expands to a larger article - this can be used to bootstrap into a discussion URL or to a longer version of the <description> tag. - <desription> should not be CDATA anymore. It should contain multiple paragraphs <p> - published date on <items> via <pubDate>. This allows you to keep track of how old (or fresh) the content is. - language on items. This is necessary for global RSS distribution. ========================================= Also, anyone have a contact with Netscape about this? Their newsgroup is pretty empty. -- Kevin A Burton Senior Software Engineer Kendara Inc http://www.kendara.com Mobile: 408-910-6145 Linux - The revolution will NOT be televised xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
