Subject: Legal embedded HTML missed
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 554b
See, the description contains HTML -- anchors and suchlike. For a while I was just embedding XHTML inside the <description> field (using the proper XHTML namespace). But that's not really valid RSS. So now I skip the <description> altogether and use the (well-documented) "content" extension, which lets you embed HTML content and attach it to an RSS entry. That's closer to what's actually going on here. The RSS validators I can find seem to think it's OK. For example: http://feeds.archive.org/validator/check?url=http://sweetcode.org/index.xml
