When publishing content, hypersyndication decreases costs by utilizing the power of the Internet and social media sites.
Just like your site needs to be browser compatible your podcast feed must be compatible with anyone who wants to read your feed.
In this course, Rich Harrington explores the world of hypersyndication—showing how to distribute content across all media platforms quickly and more efficiently.
Now some XML parsers require a schema and bork (this is a technical term :-) - refuse to parse) on XML files not conforming to the schema.
Now seeing how you are parsing arbitrary RSS, probably it is the best to skip validating and make the best effort of parsing the RSS feed.
The validator also supports the IETF standard Atom format for syndicated feeds.
There are validators for other web technologies, such as HTML, CSS, and accessibility guidelines, and these have all proven quite popular.
From what I can gather online, it looks as if validating is separate from the parse, either by using a service (feedvalidator.org) or some other method (parse_url()).
Anyone have some insight into either how XML_domit_rss validates, or a method by which I can validate before sending the URL to the parser? Validating in the context of XML files (and hence RSS/Atom feeds which use XML to encode the values) means to use a document schema which describes the expected structure of the XML file (which elements can have what child elements, what attributes can be present, etc).
It supports Really Simple Syndication and two other syndication formats in wide usage today: Atom and RDF Site Summary.
