I've seen a couple of people complaining that their home-rolled RSS
consumers broke, complaints were on weblogs that I rolled to from
scripting.com so I figured you probably saw them to, guess I was wrong,
they were written in xslt; I looked at the xslt and saw of course as I
expected that the breakage was caused by the namespace - i.e
blogChannel, these were of course not complex things to fix, but it was
breakage. If you have some xml aware processing doing your consuming
such annoying little breakages might become par for the course. Of
course if the consumption is being done by a Perl script with Regex
things should be fine. I prefer xml aware processing, guess that shows
my intellectual deficiencies somewhere.
