rss output

please help, i need some advice from an expert how to do the rss output right, finally. i think i made quite a lot of moves regarding the encoding of description values (from no encoding over <-like encoding to CDATA sections).

now there's muttering about the CDATA again, which leads me back to <-like encoding or even way back to the beginning because "use of encoding within description elements considered harmful"...

so please, somebody who admires his own expertise in rss questions might state a last word now – and please not for the sake of any specific feedreader having troubles with rss – but for the sake of the rss specs and a format we still can use in the near future:

which way to do it right? (ie. if/how to encode html tags, if/how to encode special characters etc.)

ps. CDATA has to go definitely.


koenn wir das auch haben?

oder gibts das schon und ich habs uebersehn?

"Last night a new feature in Radio, comments in RSS feeds. If you have comments turned on in your weblog, when Radio generates your RSS feed, it includes the new (in 2.0) comments element, that links to the comments for the item. It works both ways. When Radio reads an RSS feed that contains links to comments, it shows them on the News page, so if you read something there and want to comment (and the site supports them) you can just click on the Comments link and you're there. Jake added the feature last night. That's the reason we did all the fussing with the new 2.0 format, so we could bring new features to the users. [Scripting News]"
