Hi Roger

Thanks for the info, I'll have to do some more reading - but I think I might save the W3C spec until I really need to sleep ;-)



Caz,What the six apart quote doesn't full explain ...

Caz,

What the six apart quote doesn't full explain is that Atom assists with Semantic based web technologies and is therefore a good standard to support over the long term.

As well RDF is also a good standard for similar reasons as Atom but from what I understand the two, ATOM and RDF don't overlap.

For information on RDF go to the W3C and they will explain in excruciating detail. :)

Cheers,
Roger



What's the Difference Between the Various Formats?...

What's the Difference Between the Various Formats?

For a regular person reading feeds, the various versions of RSS and Atom should offer similar experiences. At a technical level, RSS is focused on making simple syndication very easy, and is the older and more widely-published format. Atom is a web standard from the IETF, one of the standards bodies that's helped define the web, and is more focused on enabling both reading and writing of content with a single format. At Six Apart, all of our tools support both formats equally.
