I'm happy with the styled feed

Posted May 27, 2004 in XSLT.

After experimenting for a couple of months with applying XSLT to my RSS 2.0 feed, I have now decided to make that its normal behavior. The experimental feed is no more.

During a forthcoming redesign, I will be doing the same with my Atom feed too.

    Cool. I did the same thing with my RSS feed a couple of months ago. I, too, need to style the Atom feed in a simlar way, still. (Perhaps with the same style sheet?)

    By the way, "Really Simple Syndication"? *shrug* You do realize RSS is actually an abbriviation for "RDF Site Summary," right? Syndication is only one RSS module. Then again, the actual term is probably too tech savvy for visitors that are NOT experts on web standards. :p

    Hmm, I posted too quickly:

    Actually, I define them like this:

    RSS 0.90 - RDF Site Summary
    RSS 0.91 - Rich Site Summary
    RSS 1.0 - RDF Site Summary
    RSS 2.0 - Really Simple Syndication

    Since I am using the latter format, I give it the stupid-sounding "Fisher-Price: My First Feed" name that Dave Winer came up with.
