Radio’s Aggregator supports RSS Auto-Discovery

June 1st, 2002

[Original Link] I added the appropriate tags yesterday, so anyone using Radio to read this site could have subscribed simply by pointing at http://www.statusq.org, rather than having to find the RSS feed.

Dave W explains that there are many limitations in the current implementation because “Writing an HTML parser is a big job”. But writing an XHTML parser is a much simpler one, and many of us would joyfully produce XHTML-formatted weblogs if only Radio would let us. :-)

Radio is fun because things move so fast, so it’s a pity that this standard, which has been the W3C-recommended form of HTML for some time, is not supported.
