svg and rss

The W3C SVG Working Group recently added an RSS feed of SVG news.

Meanwhile, Scott Andrew and others are experiencing semantic overload, wondering if xhtml aggregation isn’t a better choice. “The rules that govern XHTML as a semantic metalanguage will need to be put to the test”.

In developing Tax Newsletters, rss was intentionally very easy to add. We wrote a custom dtd to describe the structure of a web site, using xslt to generate xhtml and rss versions of the site content. The mark-up is not perfect, and does not validate against the xhtml strict dtd yet, but it is very good now, and will get better.
