Sorry, what's the question here? It's RSS (specifically, a format called
Atom), which is used for everything from the above to news articles, and
The file I downloaded from that link was definitely an RSS (Really Simple
Syndication) version 2 feed and not an Atom feed at all. The two formats
offer similar functionality but are not interoperable.
From the link:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<rss version="2.0" xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/"
<title>information - Everyone's Tagged Photos</title>
And example Atom document:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf8"?>
Maybe the implied question is: Could NetSurf support this. Personally I
consider these feeds better supported by mail/news readers or their own
application. They could be supported by including something like xsltproc
and providing a suitable style sheet to convert to XHTML but that would not
work so well on RSS v1 which definitely isn't well formed XML.
