No, not the format; the way its implemented. Of the feeds I selected, it was rare to find two that had identical semantic markup. It seemed to me that people looked elsewhere, chose what seemed appropriate and used the elements. namespaces were ignored, varied etc. The biggest problem was the unpredictability. I only took too atom feeds, so that's not really informative. They were 0.3, and valid IIRC. regards DaveP > -- Regards DaveP. XSLT&Docbook FAQ http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl
