Mark Pilgrim has an entertaining compare & contrast of the 9 incompatible
versions of RSS. Sample:

All RSS 2.0 feeds must be assumed to be RSS 2.01 feeds, despite the fact
that RSS 2.01 is incompatible with RSS 2.0. This means that, if you
published an valid RSS 2.0 feed on November 10th that contained
<hour>24</hour>, you would wake up on November 11th to find that your feed
had become invalid while you slept.

Just for the record, there hasn't yet been an "official" spec release of
Atom - material published so far has only been for discussion,
experimentation etc.
